Bracken Fern

This piece is sold

Width: 37 cm
Height:31 cm

The year I made this I was entranced by the colour turquoise! The rich colours and texture of dead bracken fern provided the contrast I was looking for, and cheered up a bleak winter's day. Mixed media, using wool roving, lace, ribbon, beads, sheers, embroidery threads, floss, tapestry fabric, and cotton batting. The techniques used to construct this piece include:  felting, machine embroidery and a hand painted background.  It is mounted on tapestry fabric.
