Project Information

De Morgan Cushion Panel on Freestyle Embroidery

This project was based upon a fantastic day spent at Wightwick Manor, Wolverhampton, which is the most beautiful Arts and Crafts house. The house itself was brim full of fantastic period artefacts for inspiration. This beautiful De Morgan vase which features peacocks inspired me further to create this panel in his style.

The surface of the panel is very tactile and dimensional, using tabs and felted shapes to raise the surface and to stitch into.
