Arabesque by Toni Marie Fourte

3rd Place, Japanese Embroidery

‘Arabesque’ – such a gleaming, shiny, innocent looking Japanese Embroidery piece that is sure to shout, “Look at Me!” in any room.

Its loops, intersections, and symmetry are a courtship of mathematics and embroidery that constantly makes the stitcher think forward. Analytical geometric respect and skillful needle placement are key to its success.

Don’t let the innocent look fool you!
