Once in a while I see something that I not just like but love instantly.
Today I received a new issue of Seasons, a Dutch magazine. Inside was an article about Helen Amy Murray a British artists who makes carvings with leather, felt and fabric. Works of art that embellish furniture and wallhangings.
Something like this....
Is turned into something as beautiful as this ....
Here is a close up of work in progress.
She stitches leather (or felt or fabric) on layers of fiberfill. Then the leather is cut near the stitches with a very sharp knife and the fiberfill pushes up the leather, creating a relief. From a distance her work looks like a carving.
