FEATURED: Daisy Sheldon

Into the world of creatives

November 02, 2016

 

Who are you? 

Hi there! I'm Daisy Sheldon, a freelance embroiderer, creating bespoke pieces for fashion, film, theatre and interiors. I also have my own bridal and lingerie collection of embroidered wedding veils and boudoir wear.

 

 

How does a working day looks like for you? 

I love health, fitness and wellbeing. So I usually go to the gym most mornings before I start work to do a workout session, which makes me feel energised and sets me up for the working day. Then, the first thing I do in the studio is check and respond to my emails and consult my diary with the list of things to be done for the day. I love a to do list, ticking things off is the best feeling! Each day is unique, due to the bespoke nature of my work; so some days I am working on embroidering monograms or wedding veils and others I can be working on something completely different like costume embroidery for theatre productions!

 

 

Can you describe your workspace?

My workspace is usually tidy (tidy home, tidy mind!) which I find helps me be creative and produce ideas, like a blank canvas! I come from a family of collectors and we have always surrounded ourselves with an eclectic cabinet of curiosities. So my workspace is full of vintage object trouves and textiles, from vintage sewing ephemera lined up along the top of my fireplace to old tins on shelves and letterpress trays hung on the walls, housing all of my embroidery threads.

 

 

 

 

Your work is absolutely exquisite and my favourite piece is the Japanese Dreams Kimono. Can you tell us about it?

The Japanese Dreams kimono was a culmination of inspiration from Japanese culture and the idea of the 1930's boudoir. The bedroom was transformed in the 1930's to the decadent boudoir, influenced by the glamour of Hollywood, turning it into a personal, intimate chamber of luxury. The kimono exudes this sense of sensual, feminine, luxuriousness and romance evident in the birth of the boudoir. 

The kimono was also inspired by Japanese traditions, imagery and the notion of traditional Japanese packaging.Traditional Japanese packaging holds both beauty and charm was often made by individual inventors, each one of them, the product of a single persons ingenuity. The packaging has two roles, one serves to protect the contents inside and another role lies in the Japanese holding the belief that a commodity should not be merely packaged for the sake of convenience; it should be packaged with a certain style that attracts the buyer or person who receives the 'gift'.

Drawing visual inspiration from Japanese paintings, old silk embroideries and natural forms, such as wisteria, the kimono is hand painted and adorned with silk wisteria petals, hand sewn onto the sleeves and back. These petals flutter gently with movement, echoing back to the beautiful nature they were inspired by and giving the feeling of elegance to the wearer.

 

 

 

 

Do you craft everything to order? Is every piece unique? 

Yes, every piece is made to order to each individual's specific requirements. Each piece I make is unique, due to the nature of Cornely and Irish embroidery, which enables me to 'draw' onto fabric, with the same mark-making freedom that a painter uses a paint brush, or a sculptor embraces form.


This process of spending time meticulously embroidering a piece gives it value that only these traditional processes have, each piece an artwork in itself. These hand guided embroidery machines contrast to the computerised digital embroidery mostly used nowadays to create mass produced products, which eliminate the opportunity for spontaneity and the work being produced by ones' individual hand.

 

 


English Birds Veil

 

 

Do you have a favourite among the pieces you've made? If, so which one and why?

My favourites change all the time, as I am constantly creating new pieces. At the moment it would probably be the 'English Birds' wedding veil. This veil features a traditional scallop edge with an English rose and forget me not design. English birds in subtle pastel colours swoop and frolic amongst the intertwined swirling branches and rose vines, which trail elegantly up the veil. 


I love the idea of wedding veils that are different from the traditional style. Lace tends to be very structured and uniform, which is beautiful, but I would like to create some more asymmetrical designs. I am hugely inspired by oriental textiles, nature and botanical aspects, so expect to see more veils pushing the boundaries of traditional 'bridal wear', with scenes of peacocks, beautiful wild flowers climbing up veils and exquisite colours (not just white or ivory!).

 

 

"I am proud to preserve a technique that
could otherwise, sadly, become a dying art.
"

 

 

Can you tell us about the machine and techniques you use? 

I use old, rare embroidery machines to create my work, including a 1920's Cornely machine (named Beryl!) and an Irish machine. The Cornely creates a beautiful, decorative chain stitch and the Irish is for free-hand satin stitch embroidery, a bit like drawing with stitch! The embroidery produced is arguably superior to more recent techniques both in terms of creativity and quality. I am proud to preserve a technique that could otherwise, sadly, become a dying art.

 

 

 

 

Why did you decide to create your website with Portfoliobox?

Portfoliobox is great because it is so easy to use and you can make your website so personal and unique. I am a perfectionist and I am always trying to improve my website and the portfoliobox team have been amazingly helpful with accommodating my technical requests and have really helped me tailor the website to my individual needs. Thank you to all the team for your ongoing help!

TOMMASO BACCHELLI

Portfolio of the day

November 01, 2016

 

Who are you?

I am Tommaso Bacchelli, mainly photographer for Latophotography with my wife Laura Karvelis (she got her website with Portfoliobox too) and we are wedding photographer. In this case I've put the focus only on my analog work, mostly black and white and totally processed by me in my darkroom. As you can see I love to do multi-exposure and try different using old and sometimes broken camera that give me brilliant and strange results like light leaks or expired film and development products to get strange texture on the frame.

 

What is your next creative project?

I actually don't have a real project in my mind, just shoot as more as I can while I'm travelling but also at home and everywhere I find something interesting.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I think Portfoliobox is one of the best platform to build your own website, it is very easy (I built mine in less than 3 hours, I am serious!!!), also it looks very professional and clean, those are the reason why I love it.

WALLACE TING

Portfolio of the day

October 28, 2016

 

Who are you?

 

I'm Wallace or Wallace Ting. I'm a fashion designer, from Hong Kong. I recently graduated from a BA programme in Fashion Design - Knitwear Design and Technology. I currently focus on designing menswear because i love tailoring and craftsmanship. I like many different styles and I like to change, so I always like to do something different from what I have done before. My work is usually based on my personal experience and I like to tell stories with my work. I would consider my design as minimal, futuristic, creative and yet classic.

 

What is your next creative project?

I'm still looking for inspirations. Maybe I will do a women collection next — who knows.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

The thing I like about Porfoliobox is that it's very user-friendly and quick. I can build a website within a day and there are lots of different options and cool layout designs that I can choose from to match my style. Also, the website is mobile phone friendly, I can totally use it for job interviews with iPads. And more importantly, I can register my own domain, which is very cool and convenient!

Joel Clements

Portfolio of the day

October 24, 2016

 

Who are you?

My name is Joel Clements, I’m an illustrator living in Leeds, UK doing watercolour tattoo flash paintings and more simplified black and white work which I hand print and sell online and at art markets. Traditional tattoos are a huge influence on me, especially the work of Sailor Jerry, Bert Grimm and other tattoo artists from the 20s/30s. I also love advertisements from that era, with the limited colour palette and minimalism. As well as this I’m lucky to have an amazing group of creative friends and peers who I’m constantly inspired by to work harder.

 

What was the last movie you watched?

The Hateful Eight. I’m a huge fan of all of Tarantino’s movies and also of how he views being a writer/director. There’s a quote I love which was when he was asked if he went to film school he said “No, I went to films” which as a self taught artists I relate to hugely.

 

What was the last book you read?

A Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. I’ve read it a few times and it’s one of my favourite books. It’s about a future society where less and less people are able to have children so they force “handmaids” to have the children of the rich and powerful. It’s a really dark but powerful book, a must read for anyone into dystopian novels. I really enjoy reading and often find a lot of quotes and ideas to use within my work.

 

What is your next creative project?

Mostly I plan on building on what I’m already doing, getting more designs and products in my shop, particularly moving into get more clothing and accessories. Also practicing and progressing with my painting and tattoo designs and eventually find myself a tattoo apprenticeship which I’m really excited about.
 

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

As an artist a great looking portfolio is super important. With Portfoliobox it’s possible to make one that’s stylish, easy to update and I can customise fully to make it exactly the way I want it. Also as I’m not the best with computers I was quite nervous about setting it up but was amazed at how quick and easy it was to get the website built and ready to show people.
