Welcome to the Buffy Robinson website. Here you can see the largest ever collection of my Batik work. My canalside Gallery in Shropshire is open by appointment, so please email me if you would like to arrange a visit and I would be happy to show you around.

Art Nouveau Panel

I'm working towards making a new lampshade based on this Art Nouveau design.  These colours are a combination I haven't used before, so I did this little panel as a try-out.  To get the terracotta brown, I put bright orange dye on top of the blue/grey and it worked!

I absolutely love Art Nouveau especially the flowing whiplash lines of the early designs.  This design I have adapted, is from a brass jug I have which was made by J Sankey in the early 1900s.  I collect anything I can afford of the period and if each piece I buy inspires me to do some new work, then I can sell it and buy more original Art Nouveau! That's the plan anyway!

I really liked the rough border where I had been testing the colours while I was working, so I decided to mount ithe finished original onto a white cotton background and frame it complete.  The 'Art Nouveau Panel' is FOR SALE in my Gallery (16"x12 inc frame) for £125.  Let me know by email if you are interested in buying it, or would like to commission a lampshade featuring the design.
