Embroidered Sculptures by Meredith Woolnough

Australian artist Meredith Woolnough created these stunning embroidery works using a special sewing process.

“I work with a unique technique that allows me to create embroidered structures that exist without a base cloth. It’s not your typical embroidery."

She first maps out the design with thread using a domestic sewing machine onto a fabric that dissolves in water.

“I mapped out the internal structure of the leaf and translated the design into a dense network of stitches.”

This unique process build up densely stitched structures that will hold together once the base fabric is dissolved. She then mounts each piece with pins onto paper.

“It took me months to complete and it almost sent me mad, but I am so happy with how it turned out.”
