Original hand embroidered and pressed flower artwork by artist Leah Nikolaou.
Leah has taken inspiration from vintage brooches in the shape of bows and simple wild flowers picked and pressed from her garden. The wool used for the embroidery she sources from UK yarn companies who hand dye in very small batches.
The bow is embroidered into recycled brown paper with a chunky DK yarn, the precarious process itself made this element of the design as fragile as the pressed flowers and petals. One wrong move and the piece would turn into a huge ripped hole. Holding the fragile paper at just the right angles when stitching and pulling the needle in only one direction allowed Leah to develop her method of embroidery.
A3 size, 11.7 x 16.5" (297 x 420 mm).
This artwork comes unframed and unmounted.
