ENGLAND The Royal Pavillion : Chinese Orient Exotic Inspiration

Posted in Techniques and Materials tagged , , , , , , , , , at 4:56 pm by satinmoon

Brighton was the first stop of my whirlwind adventure .

Brighton’s Royal Pavillion overwhelmed me with delight.

The breathtaking opulence of patterns ,colour and texture in Prince George’s magical palace by the sea,

played out in a magnificent world of sparkling chandeliers,

tables laid for a lavish feast,

golden domed ceilings

and exotic dragons,

lions and serpents absolutely dazzle the senses.

It is a truly magical world decorated in Chinoiserie.

As an artist and

quilter,

the hand

painted

wallpapers were an Aladdin’s treasure trove

of textile design

inspiration.

The ceramic  butterfly

art of Clare Twomey

over 3,000 black ceramic butterflies in the Banqueting Room,

Great Kitchen and

Entrance Hall of the

Royal Pavilion

enhanced the sublime creativity .

I am filled with  abundant inspiration for stenciling

both Wallstencils and

whole cloth

painted quilts

and epicurean

delights.

Next I’ll share the textile inspiration of Brighton’s Laines.
