Felt Vessel Project 2012 - Part 3 of 3


The Felt Store has been presenting the Vessel Project winners of the Dec 404 Interior Decorating Class at Humber College. The project is in collaboration with professor Susan Schwartz and her students. This week we are featuring some Honourable Mentions!


Kristina Krmelj, “Oversized Coral Clutch”
Honourable Mention






The Oversized Coral Clutch is truly stunning. Using a tabby weave, Kristina intricately worked the felt into this trendy and modern clutch. Using food dye, Kristina was able to get this lovely coral colour which is on point for the spring fashion season. The Oversized Coral Clutch features a large compartment and latch closure.


Materials Used:
Remnant Felt
Metal Latch

Vu Bui, “Felt Lamp Shade”
Honourable Mention






What is wonderful about this project is the variety of concepts and execution. Vu was able to take the felt and form it into this sculptural lamp shade that oozes modern cool. The subtle curves of the felt create lightly texture contours that reflect the light inside. As mentioned in a previous post, 100% Wool Felt is an excellent material to use for lighting due to its flame retardant properties, and the varying layers of transparency give the lamp an extra dimension when lit.


Materials Used:
Remnant Felt
Light Bulb

Nadezhda Kachurina, “iPad Messenger Bag”
Honourable Mention




What we really enjoyed about the projects this year is the change of the vessels to fit today's technology. Nadezhda designed an iPad Messenger Bag that is not just about function but style. Nadezhda was able to convey the aesthetics of Chanel in the chain strap and her own modern take on how we can carry our favourite media devices. This iPad Messenger Bag is a great way to show that we are not limited to one style of case.


Materials Used:
Remnant Felt
Chain
Snaps

Alejandro Garduno, “Messenger Bag”
Honourable Mention




This Messenger Bag, designed and constructed by Alejandro is a sophisticated and luxurious bag perfect for the business man or woman of today. The woven pattern of the bag adds a character that we do not often see in the traditional messenger bag. The juxtaposition of the natural grey felt and the brown leather and bronze hardware shows true care and style. This bag features a lined compartment and an adjustable strap.


Materials Used:
Remnant Felt
Bronze Hardware
Leather
