Textile appliqué with hand and machine embroidery, 27cm x 20cm
The image is landscape in orientation.
The finished dimensions given are a guide as to a suitable mount size for cutting card mounts if they were to be framed. As the images are hand made the edges are irregular and un-finished so include some frayed edges and irregularity which is a feature of the work. In some cases the work is a little larger in places than the dimensions given.
As with all textile work direct sunlight will gradually fade the colours over time. Ideally they should be framed behind Exhibition Glass with a good level of U.V. Protection. The pieces with naturally dyed fabrics will fade more quickly but these fabrics have been mordanted to provide good light fastness.
The pieces named by month were part of a year long residency at Sussex Prairie Gardens near Henfield. There are prints and cards available of more images in the series, please contact Susan for further information firstname.lastname@example.org
