First up is Ira's 'neutral' embroidery hoop challenge piece.It is
covered in tiny French knots and the crescent voids,which show the original fabric ground,are embellished with tiny beads.It is staggering the amount of work she has put into it.
Why is Ira holding up a large blank piece you might ask......well there is an answer? While on a trip to Scotland she came across a ceramicist who created work which struck a chord with her .She has
an idea to create large scale book forms.
These are some initial mock-ups of her ideas.
And the large blank ......is the size she is going to work to.The artist who started Ira off on this new vein is Lotte Glob.
