French jug print.

Inspired by french brocantes and gorgeous country style wares to compliment very neutral and white interiors.

Taking the 'jug' 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 she sources from UK yarn companies who hand dye in very small batches.  This unique element adding to their heirloom appeal.

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.
