Hand Embroidery (Goldwork, Hand Beading, Silk Shading) on Shibori Dyed Cotton Organdie
Dimensions: 30 x 36 cm
Exploring creative boundaries by drawing parallels between traditional technical stitch ability and cutting-edge design, Lucy Martin is a specialist hand embroidery practitioner based in the UK. Advocating ethical and sustainable design practice through material choice and mindful production, her work explores the parallels between art and nature, questioning whether the true beauty of nature can be replicated with a needle and thread. Growing up near the idyllic countryside of the Peak District, Lucy has always been surrounded by natural beauty. Capturing the feeling of serenity she feels when exploring the surrounding landscape, her pieces take inspiration from mineral specimens to florals evoking a sense of place within her artwork. Using hand embroidery to create abstract forms is integral to her practice.
The delivery fee for the artwork is £20 for bespoke packaging and insured postage (this is on top of the price of the piece).
