Patricia Fernandes

Patricia Fernandes is a Perth based contemporary ceramic artist. Patricia has an extensive range of exquisite jewellery pieces as well as adding wall plaques to the mix. Patricia knew that they weren’t being showcased to their full potential and wanted to improve the presentation of her market stall at the Perth Upmarket. Design Merchants to the rescue!

Previously the stall did not use many props so everything was laid out flat on a mid-grey fabric. This did not emphasise the delicate quality of the patterned ceramics and was the first thing discussed at the consultation.

A subtle palette of calico and wood was chosen to highlight the white of the ceramic and the bold colours of the patterns. Props were also designed to create little podiums to separate the collections and fixtures were designed to house the earrings and hair clips.

Patricia and her dad then busied themselves making the props with a trial run of the set up to fine tune the layout. It is always a great idea to do a practice run of a stall or concept before the day as this gives you time to play around with options. Photos can also be taken so that you can remember how to set it up on the day of the market.

Here is the result!
