Embroidery

A series of embroidered round vessels conveying a play of texture and colours. They are made of threads and the lacy texture is obtained using free-hand machine embroidery. Inspiration for this piece comes from my fascination with texture and 3D shaping. The round shape captures natural forms. Each little vessel has is own identity with its own colour, whereas the bigger vessel unifies the three colours. The variation of colours helps deliver the idea of movement and growing texture.

Exhibited at the Irish Guild of Embroiderers group exhibition, 2014
