Vintage tulip vase of pressed flowers print in black & white.

The vase was originally hand stitched with a fine yarn blend of wool. This is a print of the original work.  Printed on quality giclee paper.

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.  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 stunning results.  

A4 in size, it is the following dimensions:  8.3 x 11.7" (210 x 297mm.)  This is an open edition.
