Indian Sunflower, by Stef Francis
This embroidery (available as a kit) was created by layering up different types of fabric, so that you are seeing down through layers. The backing fabric is gold, and on top of this is a loose lace so that the gold can be seen through the holes. On top of the lace is placed an embossed copper 'sunflower' and on top of this again is a final layer of hand-dyed silk organza to impart colour to the whole embroidery.
The work is then embroidered on top, and forms a 'window' through which the sunflower is viewed.
