STITCH exhibit at Morehead 3
A few more things I liked at the STITCH exhibit -- today's technique is felting.
Here's a small piece that makes a big impression with very modest means; it's small, it's subtle, it's straightforward, it's stunning! A little hand stitching and a few beads are the only embellishments to the beautifully rendered portrait.
Here she uses the maps to cover the frame, and sets a map-like piece of felt inside. Machine stitching adds a grid that resembles latitude and longitude lines, with glass beads accentuating the grid.
