Yarn x velvet x ceramic
This series of work explores coral landscapes.
Textured and highly detailed hand embroidery sits delicately on natural linen fabric, I have used Ceramics, French knots, bullion stitch and running stitch to create this textural embroidery.
I have used; cotton yarn & porcelain.
The ceramic embellishments are made from porcelain, the porcelain has been mixed with a 'calcium borate frit' (quite simply this is crushed glass) to make it much stronger and more durable than normal fired porcelain. When you fire it, the glass melts within the porcelain and means it is stronger than normal porcelain.
All elements are hand made and no two alike.
There are many three dimensional embellishments made by hand on this embroidery.
Secured in a 7 inch wooden hoop with brass fittings.
