Crazy for embroidered art

Dec 27, 2009

I've always loved embroidered works.  Last month, I checked out a book from the library on how to embroider pillows and other small accessories.  I actually didn't get very far with any of the projects in the book, but I have been inspired to start incorporating some embroidery in my own art work. 

Here are a few contemporary embroidered works that are pretty fabulous.  Okay, I'll admit, I'm jealous.

Takashi Iwasaki, Torihatanobori, 18" x 14".

Emily Katz, my Bear, 6" diameter.

Gillian Bates, Brighton Pier, 10" x 12".

Megan Whitmarsh, Twinz Crystal, 60" x 40".
