I love the shapes, forms and colours of feathers and they make such a great subject for art of all mediums.
I've hand embroidered this one onto a piece of calico using quality DMC threads in shades of grey and lilac. I had previously hand painted the piece of background fabric for the feather using acrylic paint. The painted fabric was then washed and allowed to dry before being heat set. I then carefully frayed the edges of the piece to give it a softer look.
The feather has been embroidered onto a larger piece of backing calico which I've laced around artist's mountboard. This stretches the work so that it doesn't pucker (you can see the lacing in one of the photos).
The embroidery comes with a white mount and the edges of the frayed fabric can either be hidden behind or allowed to come outside of the mount (as in the main picture).
The piece (and the mounting) measure 8 inches by 6 inches and is ready for you to hang in your own frame.
I design and make all of my own work and so this is a unique piece of textile art that would be a lovely addition to someone's home.
