A manipulated image


Designed by Jocelyn Warner and sold by Blumenthal, this pattern is aptly called Step. Warner creates her designs by scanning objects into her computer and then manipulating the image to simplify their form. Her designs are very bold and printed in refreshing colors. Step is from Warner's second collection produced in the year 2000. This piece was inspired by scanning folded paper, which led to a large 3-D design put together in totem pole lengths. This is screen-printed in just one color. This design and can be installed in a number of different ways.

Slideshow: Miss Rococo


Intimate and ornate, rococo design has long been associated with feminine taste. Madame de Pompadour, the official mistress of Louis XV, was one of the supreme patrons of the rococo style. In 1990 artist Cindy Sherman pictured herself as Madame de Pompadour, emblazoning her image on a porcelain tureen commissioned by Artes Magnus.
