A little inspiration.




The pattern I have created is slightly inspired by the repeat pattern found on “mashrabiyas” which are wooden screens found around the city. Their original use was to shield women’s faces, whilst in the home, from neighbours due to Islamic ideas that womens hair or faces canont be seen by men other than their husband. They are now used as decorative pieces found in riads and restaurants. Another inspiration are the decorative lights that project patterns on to walls and ceilings. Light is always something that fascinates me, whether it be an object that works with natural light or a light fitting like the ones found at the restaurant I have featured in my sketchbook.
