about this item
Stunning originality elevates Australian artist Meredith Woolnough's embroidery to fine art as she recreates nature's patterns and inspires us to rejoice in the world's simple beauties. TheEmbroidered Nature 2017 wall calendar features twelve dazzling embroidered specimens, including the alluringCoast Pennywort on the calendar's cover.The calendar also includes Meredith's dramatic Golden Ginkgo Square, Amazonian Water Lily,Scribbly Gum Leaf, and more. To create these extraordinary, intricate motifs, Meredith uses the simplest setting on her sewing machine to cover water-soluble fabric with layers of thread. As she stitches more layers, the work grows into remarkable 3D structures. Dissolving the soluble base then transforms the machine embroidery into delicate, awe-inspiring artwork.
