Why POLLACK  |  I have a great deal to learn, and POLLACK is the ideal environment in which to do it. Every day here is equal parts inspiring and humbling.

Impressions of NYC  |  I grew up just two local stops away on the Metro-North red line. I’d been exposed to the city’s charms (and desensitized to it’s nuisances) at an early age.

Favorite design style  |   I would say that in general I hold particular appreciation for designs that are strong (a punch of pattern or color or texture, or any composite thereof) but still retain small moments of intimacy, details that entice and linger after the initial impression.

How will your internship affect your coursework  |   POLLACK is providing me not only with an entirely refitted arsenal of textile-related possibilities, but also with the opportunity to adopt a more conscious outlook on my work and my work ethic. I feel that at such an early stage in my career as an artist it is all too easy to lose perspective, to become overly introspective to the point of self-absorption, and so I am grateful to be able to expand on my viewpoint panoramically.

Peony, a fabulous new embroidery and Petal Pusher, part of our high performance & bleach cleanable collection, are two very different floral motif fabrics, but are equally as interesting. Check out some of the detailed work that went into them.

Here's an original sketch of large voluptuous blooms by the lovely Lauren

Below is a portion of the CAD artwork for Peony. Each colorway uses eight embroidery colors, with the dots themselves intricately toned.

 

All colorways from L to R: night blossom, morning bloom, plum wine & fiesta.

 

 Here's a scan of the 3D artwork done by the studio for Petal Pusher

And here's the CAD work sent to the mill

All 9 cheery colorways: sandstone, salt and pepper, pewter, Caribbean, sunflower, carrot soup, lipstick, grape soda, midnight sky.
