Modernist Embroidery. Textile art in Embroidery Hoop


MADE TO ORDER. Please allow 1 week for making.  Please note:The embroidery in the photos is sold. I will make a similar but not identical on custom order.

An embroidery I made on my favourite natural (undyed and unbleached) coarse brown linen with wool using bokhara couching stitch and appliquee with navy vintage denim. The motif is from Stockholm coffee set I own made in the 70s by Bavarian Melitta factory, "framed" inside an embroidery hoop. A found fucsia purple bead is decorating the string from which the embroidery hangs.

A gift for a hard-to-please... Will make a feature in a small area, like a hallway, landing, nursery, bathroom, kitchen, anywhere there is a small wall area especially if it's catching sunlight to allow the viewer to see the the textures and the contrast between the lighter linen and dark embroidery. Eye-catching /rustic/ edgy/ sophisticated/ primitive/ modern/ vintage/ boho chic...

18cm diameter (7'').
