This hand embroidered waterlily was designed with the Art Nouveau style in mind. The art work features a stylised waterlily worked in silk floss and metal thread on a satin background. The silk flosses. which are made to order by a small family run business of silk throwsters, are in a range of blue shades for the petals and green silk floss for the leaves. Metal thread in a beautiful gilt pearl purl, produced by one of the only two remaining metal thread manufacturers in the UK, has been used for the petal and leaf outlines. The silk floss with its lovely sheen, combines beautifully with the gold coloured metal thread.
Each piece is presented mounted to represent a tile, raised on an inset white mount, signed and framed in a white wooden box frame. A label on the back of the frame provides information about my career to date and the process behind the making of each piece.
