This hand embroidered tree was designed with the Art Nouveau style in mind. The art work features a stylised tree 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 pink, purple and mauve shades for the leaves and green silk floss for the root of the tree. Metal thread in a beautiful silver plated pearl purl, produced by one of the only two remaining metal thread manufacturers in the UK, has been used for the tree branches and leaf outlines. The silk floss with its lovely sheen, combines beautifully with the silver 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.
