I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t turn down a 5-minute virtual woodland escape right now, especially when it involves gorgeous embroidered sculptures. The Guardian published a pictorial article called Embroidered sculptures of woodland treasures – in pictures a few weeks ago, showcasing the beautiful work of Amanda Cobbett.
Isn’t this exquisite? Both the attention to detail and the execution are superb.
The article quotes the artist:
“When you’re out in the forest, it’s the tiny detail that makes me want to be there as much as the bigger picture,” she says. “It’s really important to take note of these things, because if at some point they disappear, and we don’t know that they exist, how will we know when they’ve gone?”
This statement really resonates for me right now!
Below is another piece, and you can see more in the article linked above. And if this captures your fancy, then you must check out Amanda Cobbett’s webpage, here, which is gobsmacking (although be forewarned that this will expand your 5-minute virtual woodland escape into a veritable holiday of crafty goodness.)
I hope that you enjoyed a short break and took the time to take a deep breath and to appreciate both nature and craftsmanship.
