Stop! Hammer-time!

No Hammerton. Catherine Hammerton to be precise. Graduate of the Royal College of Art in 2005, this London-based "Designer-Maker" describes her makings as "Printed & Embroidered Textiles for the Fabulous." I know it's a bit feminine in feeling but line me up behind that velvet rope! By utilizing silkscreen printing (printmaker's shout out!), hand embroidery, and digital technology, Catherine has certainly made use of everything old as new again with her modern-vintaged aesthetic.

In addition to these sweet-dreams pillows, she does phenomenal bespoke wallpaper treatments and amazing fabric designs (see below). Catherine has straddled that line between artist and designer and done it brilliantly. (And the website is SO fantastic! Great work by Redbiro.) And I cannot possibly wait to see what her creativity stirs up next. All in all....I'd say Ms. Hammerton has hit the nail on the head.
