Dunyazade

2008

Dunyazade is a mythological figure from the Arabian Nights tales, and a younger sister to the legendary Queen Scheherezade. Her dress was another experiment in dye sublimation. It is a photographic reproduction of Scheherezade’s original bead embroidery.

Dye sublimation printing uses a heat-transfer process to transfer the dye onto various mediums. The dye transitions from a solid to a gas without going through a liquid state. I use high-resolution, manipulated digital imagery of my original designs in watercolor or bead embroidery to create permanent and UV resistant dye sublimation prints on fine polyester.

 

Materials:

Sterling silver and Amethyst headpiece assembly. Sterling silver and Garnet belt assembly, bracelets and necklace, a pair of hand carved and cast sterling silver shoes. Dye sublimation polyester print; porcelain, ball-jointed, china-paint, industrial springs, leather, mohair. 13.5” (34.5cm) tall.
