This hand embroidered wall art is inspired by tree bark. It started with machine needle embellishing of merino wool and silk tops into which I added threads including hessian, silks and fancy chenille onto hessian. This textile art was then hand stitched with embroidery stitches to enhance the look of tree bark. The embroidery forms part of the bark, representing the bumps and burrs and scars found on trees.
This is a unique handmade piece of wall art as no two pieces are ever quite the same. You might frame it or use it as it is. You are buying the hand stitched textile only. It makes a stand alone pice of innovative home decor.
The actual stitched piece measures 15 x 33cm (6 x 13 inch). A certificate of authenticity comes with this work of art. The stitched area is 12 x 28cm (almost 5 x almost 11 inch).
