This is an original work of handmade embroidery art featuring many, many hours worth of tight, exquisite hand-stitching. When I make these abstract pieces on upcycled, vintage kimono silk, I'm preserving something beautiful while also transforming it into a work of unique art. I do this by choosing an unexpected palette and creating a design that riffs on the fabric pattern but stands out from it with exquisite detail and texture.
This piece is 6 x 6 inches and is expertly stretched over a small .75"-deep art canvas so there is no visible hoop and no frame and glass to take away from the visual experience. It has a felt backing which is stitched with my initials and features a saw-tooth hook for ready hanging.
