James Millar: Finding Inspiration in the Silver Studio Collection
Textile designer James Francis Millar talks about finding inspiration in the Silver Studio Collection
James was was recently interviewed at MoDA by TV Production students Liam Freeman, Jessica Chandler and Daniel Chan. In the video, James talks about the historic connections between Liberty and the Silver Studio. He reflects on the changes in the techniques that designers use to create patterns for wallpapers and textiles.
Many of the Silver Studio’s designs were drawn by hand and painted using watercolours or gouache. These methods might not be used nowadays, but as James says, the Silver Studio Collection remains a fascinating source of inspiration for today’s creative practitioners.
