Each heart is individually made using recycled 50’s and60’s woollen blankets. The wool is felted by machine washing at high temperatures and the quality of this fabric makes it very tactile and has been a pleasure to work with for many projects. Each heart is initially sewn on an old singer hand sewing machine using a variety of threads to create intense line drawings. The choice of embroidery threads, stitches and colour are selected in response to the made heart and sewn by hand.
Size 9.5cmx8.5cm. Nos.41
For over 20 years I have worked as a freelance artist facilitating “Therapeutic Art Sessions” for older people within Care Homes and the heart as “motif” was often used to support some people with their artwork. Throughout the year the seasonal themes of nature carried the heart, in the leaves, the petals, fruits and wonderfully within the richness of Chinese lanterns.
All Elders know of “the heart” of its resilience of how it is permeated with memory, emotion, relationship, time, intimacy, and sadly loss. Maintaining connection with others is so important for all of our lives and the numbering of the hearts is a reminder of this link.
The designs on each heart are influenced by the natural environment, my love of line, the multilayering of threads within Indian fabric and the richness of ecclesiastical textile. JH
