Vintage watch parts hand-stitched onto vintage linen
18.5" x 11" x 2.5" framed in walnut
For this piece, I embroidered vintage watch parts onto fabric from an old linen tablecloth. Mechanical watch parts are so exquisite and expressive, I love working with them. When sewn onto fabric, they remind me of calligraphy or hieroglyphics. I called this piece “Tempo” because it has such rhythmic movement.
This mini quilt is in a walnut floating frame with museum acrylic.
