The Making of CLAY TRAFFIC

At SNURK we cherish a love for handcraft themes in our photo prints. There are
prints of knitted flowers and woolen blankets, origami birds, pom-poms and Play-Doh clay. Crafting our styles by hand allows our designers to create unexpected textures, influence color palettes and play around with optical illusions. Often with the help of freelance artists. It is a long creative process from idea to photo print,
with many hours of craft in the middle.

Our designer Peggy finds her inspiration for new prints everywhere. This time it was a toy rug that she came across while shopping online on eBay.

Next step is a sketch of the print. Cars made from clay, but also the road. Or 'snake sausages', as Peggy calls them here.
