Portrait/Silhouette, Custom Artistic Embroidery - Throw Cushion
Inspired to have memories and an abstract artistic take of the Children or a special person in your life, a keepsake forever. Great to give and to decorate a room with an Artistic Cushion Throw, it certainly gives lush warm thoughts.
All that is needed is to attach a sideways/upwards facial photograph of the person on a plain background as shown in pictures. A Cream wall has been used in this photo.
Creating textured art with deep, bright Orange embroidery threads to colour contrast and merge together to draw our eye to this gorgeous features of the face. The Block Embroidery Colour can be your choice. My daughter chose burnt oranges.
Note: This is an example of the made to order throw - May vary depending on Photograph and design stage. Convo me/email me the photo of the person you wish to have made or add it to the order cart.
White Linen/Cotton mix quality material, with vivid embroidery. The Bright Orange Embroidered Boarder, all the way round gives it a luxury finish. This one has over 90,600 stitches and signed LMD in the design. The amount of stitches will vary depending on the photograph, design stage.
Inner: :Luxury new duck feather cushion (Down & Feather), non allergenic
More than one can be ordered, but will vary as they are unique in stitching! Colour variation also available.
"The abstract embroidery has a life of its own. There are many layers involved, and I never know exactly what the end result will be. A truly unique creation through from the beginning of the design process, through to adding colour and removing colour, letting it merge into the material/fabric and even adding selected thread neon creates glazes with light and shade. Strokes and texture build up in and on the piece over the few hours it takes to complete each piece. This artistic process can be done exactly the same on two different cushion throws, and both will come out differently. They do have a life of their own. I work with artistic styles and the medium of machine embroidery. This process is definitely the most sensuous for me. The inspiration can come from many different places, photographs, paintings, objects and for instance, going to see a film. Part of the design packages I use have their own say in when a piece is finished. The stitching seems to be maxed out when the last thread layer is added! The piece darkens or lightens with the view point you have on it, as to what time of day and with varying light. It appears to move with the light and Shade. The stitches change from being sewn one way to another giving a unique contrasting life to the piece."
