Concrete is the theme for this scarf collection. Clare created a series of hand made concrete tiles to study using macro photography and light, capturing the intricate texture and form of this man-made material.
During the making process, she experimented with the surface layer of concrete, combining other materials and objects within the drying cement, acting as a resist and creating surface texture.
The resulting concrete has been broken into fragments and composed on the light-box, highlighting the edges, crevices and irregular forms. The resulting imagery has been worked digitally to develop highly original, layered designs.
All artwork is printed onto lightweight 100% silk crepe de chine, square in size, 125cm x 125cm. Scarves are photographed by Capture Factory, model is Willow Boswell-Wright and hair and make up by Alicia Sandeman. Clothes by The Makers Atlelier – featuring the sport-luxe bomber jacket and utility dress in pure white cotton and linen.
