I haven't really talked much about embroidery here, but I think I might now because it's starting to get all serious-like. I'm offering courses, selling patterns and in a few weeks will be having a small showing in Kreuzberg of some of the more advanced embroidery stuff I'm doing.
I was thinking of 1970's porn done in Or nué goldwork, but didn't think I'd get that finished in time. Instead I'm doing a series of stumpwork pieces inspired by classic tattoos. In case you haven't heard of it (and let's face it, only the terminally uncool like myself have) stumpwork is a 17th century English embroidery technique which creates three dimensional stitched figures. It's one of my favourites.
The first I already have finished, so here you are: A Flaming Heart, rendered in thread.
