Second textile artwork from the Rusted Lace series created on a piece of my hand dyed fabric. The main design was created using iron filings in a paper cutout that turned to rust with the addition of water and salt. Dense and intricate hand stitching in various colors of thread were used to create the visual as well as physical texture of the piece which is evident when seen in person. The overall design reveals itself subtly on closer inspection. As the piece is rotated, subtle shifts in design and color emerge making this piece truly unique and designed to be easily displayed in any orientation. Artwork is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist.
