Embroidery on Silk

CHAMPION OF FLOWERS 2020

This fanciful embroidery is inspired by my love of observing birds and the rituals and memories shared over tea. I love drawing china, looking at the delicate shapes, patterns and details as I work. This Richard Champion & Co teapot is part of the permanent collection at the Gardiner Museum where I made drawings and later a little painting based on my observations.

The work is created by layering and appliquéing silks creating a ground that is then richly embroidered using my basic domestic sewing machine as a drawing tool, freely stitching to build up the detailed lines, textures and colours to complete the artwork.

This original artwork measures 9"x 11" and is mounted within a 14"x 16" acid free mat ready to frame, and is in now my shop with more details.
