Abstract

Purpose: This garment was inspired by artwork featuring studded details that I created in a ceramics class. I loved the end result of this project so I wanted incorporate the use of hand-made ceramic studs in this garment. The glaze used on the studs is a rusty metallic silver color with peach highlights. After creating the studs the other colors used in the garment were chosen to compliment and contrast the stud color. The name Peach Caviar came into mind representing something elegant and expensive. Process: I chose a beautiful shade of peach for both the bodice and the skirt portion of the dress to compliment the ceramic spikes to embellish the bodice with. When making the ceramic spikes I started by sculpting the base diameter to approximately half an inch and the height to about three-fourths an inch. After awhile of doing this I decided that more character was necessary for the overall effect I wanted my dress to convey. Therefore I started making the studs in different sizes. After this process I hollowed the spikes out and drilled 3 holes in each of the spikes, allowing the spikes to be sewn on the dress as buttons. Overall, I wanted my dress to scream modern and expensive with an overwhelming sense of couture craftsmanship. Techniques: I created my dress using draping and flat pattering techniques. The studs are individually hand crafted and glazed. Materials: 100% cotton, 100% polyester chiffon, cotton thread, invisible zipper, fusible interfacing, hand-made ceramic glazed studs.
