Meissen flowers
Source of inspiration: hand painted flowers from the Meissen Porcelain collection. Dimensions of Frame: 25cms x 25cms

Silk thread on linen ground fabric.

These motifs are so simple and pure. They capture the essence of what nature offers up each spring and summer, so it was a compelling challenge to transform them into silk thread and try to render them with the same clarity. There are several dozen flowers from this collection which can be transformed. I continue to add to this selection of embroidered flowers.
