Modern fine art print of a grey flower vase. Inspired by a ribbed looking vintage vase picked up by the artist Leah whilst exploring the vintage shop trail in Brighton.
Taking the 'vase' as her still life subject Leah's art also focuses on preserving the fragility of nature. Many of the flowers in Leah's art are nurtured, hand picked and pressed from her old garden in Guildford. The wool used for the embroidery is vintage Jaeger yarn that has a very soft touch due to its mix of wool and angora.
The original artwork from which this print was taken was 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.
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A PRINT OF THE ORIGINAL ARTWORK!
