Paint+Pattern+Pinterest: The Intricate Floral Patterns from ‘Examples of Chinese Ornaments’

Patterns from 'Examples of Chinese Ornament' | Paint + Pattern

Today’s Paint+Pattern+Pinterest post brings some great inspiration for all artists, designers, architects, craftspeople and anyone interested in decorative arts. First published in the 1856, The Grammar Of Ornament, remains a design classic and resonates with its audience even today, 150 years after its publication! The author, Owen Jones was an English-born Welsh architect. A versatile designer, he was also one of the most influential design theorists of the nineteenth century whose theories on flat patterning and ornaments are popular even with contemporary designers of the modern day. For our Pinterest Fridays, we got our hands on some amazing imagery of his monumental work, Examples of Chinese Ornaments, selected from objects in the South Kensington Museum and other collections that were a part of this most beautiful book on decorative arts ever published.

The designs in these patterns offer a wide selection of florals, birds, and other motifs, each carefully reproduced from superb examples of porcelain and cloisonné.

and which are remarkable, not only for the perfection and skill shown in the technical processes, but also for the beauty and harmony of the coloring, and general perfection of the ornamentation…” ~ Owen Jones
