Degree Show - Farzana Ullah
The next student I chose to review is Farazana Ullah who specialises in print. At first I didnt realise she was printer but once I read through her bio it soon became clear that she also uses a variety of materials combined with print to develop her designs. I feel that vertical and structured patterns play a key role in her work. Inspire by man made and natural elements she transforms flat surfaces into something raised and innovative.

Like the work of Jess Mocaci I reviewed in the previous post, using raised surfaces is not something I though appealed to me. After studying her work I noticed that her laser cut samples were to a high quality as were the quality of finish on the samples. The only thing I wasn't really aware of was the context. Context is a key aspect I want to explore in the practice unit. Designing for interiors is my initial context but during the course of the year I would like to consider other contexts such as giftware and stationary.
There is a sense of a colour pallet within this range, greys, blacks and the metallic decoration and the embellishment with the added appliqué. They were all created by hand rather than using digital printing which I think displays a great deal of dedication, passion and skill. Her use of combining two disciplines has work really effectively.
