Oceans Garden Wall Art
This is a one off design that is handmade, totally unique and inspired by my fascination with the beauty of coral reef. Each bead, sequin and thread is individually sewn by hand which builds up a sumptuous and intricate design.
The design process started with my experience of learning to scuba dive in the Caribbean Ocean and seeing the beauty of the world under the sea. Researching, drawing and designing throughout my final project of my Master of Arts in Contemporary Embroidery has led to creating "The Coral Collection".
The wall art took approximately 45 hours to sew and is stitched onto a base of 100% wool felt. The materials used are 100& merino wool felt balls which are then stitched into to create the height and shape of the corals. Sequins, glass beads, Swarovski pearls, crystal bicone beads, silk threads and wool make up the coral whilst Goldwork coloured copper purls make up the ocean along with merino wool laid using needle felting technique.
Each piece is totally unique as I use a needle and thread like others use a paintbrush, drawing directly onto the fabric, letting the colours and materials guide me to build up beautiful surfaces reminiscent of the textures, colours and shapes of the coral reef.
Embroidered area is 13cm x 13cm and framed is 23cm x 23cm.
