Jemma Pratt.

My project includes a combination of Mixed Media skills: CAD embroidery, Laser cutting and Screen/Digital Print as an addition to apply my Textiles for Fashion fabrics. I have created my own embellishments on the Laser cutter with the use of the Sonic Welder, to help explore different surface qualities and materials to work with. High-end design company Jakob Sclaepfer inspired my way of working and my choice of innovative materials. The collection of samples comprised of rigid and fluid materials including shiny, matt, and metallic surfaces. This helped re-create my primary imagery of the reflective, transparent and distorted surfaces within X-ray vision and skeletal fish; collected from Bournemouth University’s archive.
