Spyralle opened in 2009 as a boutique within Kerryth Tarantal Studios, my gallery of fractal art. The clothing line has expanded slowly, bringing unique wearable art to Second Life. In 2010 decorative textiles for the home and seasonal decorations were moved from the original KTS line to Spyralle. Jewelry and furniture were added to the line in 2011, full perm textures in 2012. In 2013, Kerryth began to add original mesh.
Spyralle garments are built from my own original fractal images created in UltraFractal and Fractint – some going back as early as 1992. Spyralle fractal clothing begins with fractals, often painstakingly clipped out of complex backgrounds and manipulated to embellish the avatar body. No purchased templates are used for system layers.
This art-to-wear gets its fabulous coloring from the original color maps and gradients I use in the fractal generating programs, with minimal color manipulation after the fractal is rendered out. For each color, the fractal is recreated with a new color gradient in the original program, and the garment must be reconstructed from scratch.
As the fine details of these fractal renderings do not hold up to a lot of pixel manipulation and distortion, continuing these complex patterns across seams ranges from challenging to impossible, but the challenge is worth it.
I hope you enjoy wearing these unique creations.
Kerryth Tarantal Studio Gallery lives on as a department within Spyralle. You will find gorgeous banners, rugs, topiaries, accent furniture and the occasional gallery show.
