The recent Seaglass photoshoot (in which our girl ended up being a selkie of sorts) combined with talking to an FMP student about fairytale-inspired design, reminded me that we have made a few dark fairytale inspired pieces over the years. Not especially deliberately, fairytales can be easily very overdone as inspiration for alternative designers. But when clients write to us about dark water, dangerous woods, sea textures and tones, a move towards something dark and dreamy happens almost automatically.
I’ve pulled together a few snaps of pieces that, whether obviously or subtly, connect to this theme and could give inspiration for future pieces. Hope you enjoy them.
