For my first design I was wanting to create a gradient of colours from dark to light to highlight the line movement of the shell. Trying to explain this on day one was incredibly difficult due to the language barrier and I feel this may have been the reason why my first design was not as good as I had envisioned. My second design was to also use a gradient, not in colour but in the size of the thread workk pattern. This time to communicate my idea I drew a sketch in my journal rather than use hand gestures and pointing to things, which was my down fall for design one. This was much more effective and both Ashok and the artisan were able to completely understand this time and my design will be better off.
