Elaborate Embroideries Mimic Delicate Natural Forms
Inspired by the skeleton leaves, Australian artist Meredith Woolnough mimic coral, leaves and other forms from nature with her elaborate embroideries. Working with a unique technique that allows Meredith to create embroidered structures that exist without a base cloth. First, she will map out the internal structure of the her design and translated the design into a dense network of stitches. When she is finished, the base fabric dissolves in water, leaving only the artist’s beautifully detailed stitch work. It usually takes Meredith months to complete one piece. Meredith’s work is held in both private and corporate collections worldwide. If you want to see more, you can find it on her website or follow her on instagram.
