How does your garden grow?

Meadow-hedgerow-cottage-bowl.02

Indeed! How does your garden grow? A question l asked myself, when l discovered these intricate bowls of nature. Created by Yorkshire Dale textile artist, Anne Honeyman, each bowl vibrantly tells its own botanical story, from meadow, hedgerow to cottage garden.

Alongside the intelligent use of colour, and delicately crafted structure, l also like the way the bowls tilt at an angle, allowing movement to subtlety reflect the natural flow of nature's habitat.

Anne Honeyman specialises in machine embrodiery, and yet also draws on a broad range of techniques from felting to metalwork to reflect the recurring theme of the environment - questioning man's impact upon it, as she weaves her textile magic.

Nestling gently in the palm of your hands, these richly embroided creations, truly capture the vivid impressions of a warm summers day!
