Yarn x silk x sateen cotton x ceramic
This series of work explores ocean landscapes.
Textured and highly detailed hand embroidery sits delicately on digitally printed sateen cotton, the print taken from an original ink painting by myself. I have used Ceramics, French knots, bullion stitch, Turkey and running stitch to create this textural embroidery.
I have used; cotton yarn, silk & 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 over 100 hundreds hours of work within this original piece of art.
There are many three dimensional embellishments made by hand on this embroidery.
