"No creature needs a rhino horn except a rhino"
This piece is a stitch sculpted textile sculpture sitting on a massive chunk of oak. It's solid, powerful and one of a kind.
I made the rhino using cotton and stitched each piece by hand. He has glass eyes and his ears are wired. His horns are also cotton and the large one is protected with barbed wire I made from wire (painful process!). I painted him with several layers of watery textile paint to build up depth and finished off with some silver leaf. The bust is sitting on a large piece of waxed oak that I painted black on the top and covered the bottom with black felt. The wood measures 11cm from side to side and 14cm top to bottom. The whole piece measures 47cm from top of horn to base of wood.
This is a totally unique, handmade piece of textile art. I cut all my work free hand and without any patterns, it makes work more exciting and the result is always one of a kind. Thank you for looking and let me know if you have any questions. x
It breaks my heart how humanity is destroying the only planet we have. My environmental anxiety keeps me up at night and this piece has been growing inside me for about a year. He is a silent protest that we all need to turn this around so that our children and their children will still have a home. There is no planet B.
