Hand Stitched natural leaf material. This artwork featured on the cover of Natural Processes in Textile Art (Batsford 2015) as well as in Alice's 'Leaf Stitching' Exhibition (2015) and book of the same title.
The leaf material was gathered near my home and 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 (and indeed have faded since the piece was originally photographed - first image), but if handled gently and treated with care should remain intact for an indefinite period of time. Fading will be slower if kept out of direct sunlight.
The stitched leaves are mounted and framed in a simple oak frame measuring 39cm x 34cm x 4cm with glass. Shipping is only available within the UK for framed pieces with glass. If you wish to purchase this piece from outside the UK it can be sent unframed. Please contact Alice using the contact form if you wish to purchase this piece unframed.
This artwork is part if the Artist Support Pledge, started by Matthew Burrows in response to Covid-19 crisis, generating income for self-employed artists who have lost free-lance work. Artists post work for sale under £200 and when they reach £1000 worth of sales through the scheme they pledge to spend £200 on another artist's work.
