This is a new piece utilizing rust pigmentation and architectural ironwork to create textile artworks. A single piece of ironwork was used three times to create the center panel. It is densely hand stitched around the rust pigmentation to give the piece 3-D relief emphasizing the grapes, vines, and leaves reproduced from the architectural ironwork. The area of flames is hand quilted in a random linear pattern to give the flames visual texture as well.
Artwork is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist.
