A collage by Natalya Aikens. Cast Iron Lace 3
Made from silk scraps, cotton and synthetic fabrics, paper scraps, dryer sheets, rayon and silk embroidery thread.
Inspired by ironwork on Moscow monuments. Look at those lovely stitches.
Recently Collage Mania took place. Organized by Virginia Spiegel, collages are donated to the event by various artists and then auctioned off on-line during two days to benefit the American Cancer Society. Here is the collage I bid on by Natalya on whose blog I have often seen similar sewn cloth collages. I received it a few days ago mounted on mat board and ready to frame.
