Museum revisited

The following three pieces are inspired by the victorian children's clothing collection.These are all worked in the most delicate, fragile silk paper, with inclusions and machine embroidery.

The tiny bootees are just wonderful.
This piece is fabulous and due to my poor photography is probably not doing Joy's work the justice it so deserves. The box is custom made (by her artist husband, John) to an ammonite shape, it has 2 perfectly functional drawers with the most beautiful turned handles. Joy used a fusion of stitching and embellishing techniques to complete the aged and well worn effect....... I loved this piece and she's such a gorgeous person. Another take on 'Fossily things', this sculpture is crunchy and so tactile
