‘Bijoux Specimen’ – Embroidered terrarium
This 3-D embroidery, from my book Embroidery Atelier, was on show at the recent Textile Fair at Compton Verney.
Inspired by a Bower bird’s nest, it is a twinkling confection of stitched feathers, flora and foliage, embroidery conjures a three-dimensional textural treat.
One visitor commented that it was reminiscent of a richly ornamented Fabergé piece, when she saw the creation nestled under its glass dome.
