An Embroidery in Progress: Claire A Baker
Here you see work in progress on a section of Claire A Baker's project piece. Such detailed embroidery takes time - the image above is the result of two and a half hours of hand sewing alone.
The embroidery is following the marks resulting from Claire's colour discharge technique. The richness Claire has achieved from such density of stitch is further enhanced with the addition of tiny scraps of lace and some fine beading work. The result is a colourful & textural feast on the fabric's surface.
