Gnarled Trees Stole

This commission is for an Ordination taking place in the summer, all being well !

It is in ivory silk dupion with machine appliqued trees. The trunk is worked in my ‘cutting away’ technique and the leaves are free machined in place using gold metallic thread.

It features the same gnarled tree on both sides, with its branches forming a cross. One depicting Spring and the other Autumn.
