Fragments of thoughts, fragments of information, fragments of ideas… everything just a part of something else, part of a bigger picture. The scale of a thing indicating the importance of its parts. In the great scheme of things, in the whole glorious vista of life on planet earth, it doesn’t really matter that one member of the corporate world doesn’t appreciate the skill in a decorative object.
So I continue to move things on, trying to find new homes for small souls. I uncovered these little samples recently:
These are little samples I made a while ago – last year, I think – just sampling some eighteenth century techniques. Aerophane embroidery is a bit like ribbon embroidery, but you use strips of silk chiffon instead of silk ribbon, so you get a much more substantial three-dimensional effect.
They are available here. I wondered if anyone might like to add them into a crazy patchwork block, or make a little book cover out of them. I give a lot of work away, but sometimes I have to sell it, and there’s no getting away from that.
