I wanted to do a simple pattern that I could screen print onto pillows with a resist and then dye with my indigo vat. So I chopped up my original motif and reassembled it into one simple shape that I used to create a strong negative space.
I chose the name Urqueira, keeping to my theme of Portuguese towns. This town is so small I couldn't really find any info on it. But I really like the way the letters look on the page, and how it sounds.
