Hedgerow flowers, seed heads, pods and dried flowers inspire many of my pieces of textile and mixed media work. The 2D flowers in this piece are formed out of Indian Sari offcuts, with vintage lace from grandma’s lace box, honesty seed heads from a donated wedding dress all hand embroidered over free machine embroidery and embellished with shell buttons and hand bead work.
