Stitched Leaf Cube #11


Hand stitched 3-dimensional cube made from natural leaf material. Stitch in cotton-silk thread hand-dyed using plant material. Featured in Alice's 'Leaf Stitching' exhibition.

The cube structure is supported inside by wool felt for robustness. The leaf material is not treated in any way apart from careful drying. Due to the nature of the material the colours of the leaf will slowly fade, but if handled gently and treated with care should remain in tact for an indefinite period of time. Fading will be slower if kept out of direct sunlight.

The cube measures approximately 3.5cm in each direction with the stalk side measuring 7cm.
