Black and white art print of a vintage vase of flowers.
The vase was originally hand stitched with a fine yarn blend of wool and angora then adorned with pressed flowers. This is a print of the original work. Printed on quality fine art giclee paper. The texture and slightly off white nature of the paper adds to the vintage appeal of this piece.
Leah's work focuses on preserving the fragility of nature. The original artwork was embroidered into recycled brown paper with a chunky DK yarn, the precarious process itself making this element of design as fragile as the pressed flowers and petals. One wrong move and the pieces turn into huge ripped holes. Holding the fragile paper at just the right angles as she stitches and pulling the needle in only one direction has allowed Leah to develop her method of embroidery with a stunning result.
This print is A3 in size, 11.7 x 16.5" (297 x 420 mm) and is an open edition.
