This handmade embroidery is a creative piece of wall art inspired by a stone statue. To make it I printed an image onto organza, then stitched a headpiece by hand using contemporary stitching. In this piece of textile art, I have used a variety of embroidery thread in a variety of thicknesses and type that add a rich texture to the stitching. I have used complementary threads including a glitter thread and silks.
This is a unique handmade item as no two pieces are ever quite the same. I have called it ‘Ancient Queen’.
This textile wall art is on a piece of organza, which is hemmed by hand and placed onto a piece of hand dyed cotton scrim, which in turn is placed onto a piece of hand dyed cotton velvet. You might frame it or mount it as a piece of art. You are buying the hand stitched textile art only not a frame. It could also be used to make a bag, cushion or a centre piece for an innovative quilt for your own personal use not for commercial use.
As a textile artist, I am interested in portraying emotion, texture and using contemporary stitch as a means of expression. My stitching is entirely spontaneous.
The piece measures 27 across x 24cm (11 x almost 10 inch). A certificate of authenticity will be provided with this work of art.
