I was thrilled to be asked again to provide embroidered cushions for Mints latest Spring Show ‘Metacraft’ which opened last month and ran for the month of May. It featured pieces that combined craft with new technologies. Mint is a wonderful gallery with some really wacky and interesting pieces and I am very happy that they enjoy putting my flowery numbers along side their other exhibition pieces which are often really quite ‘out there’!
But not only is there a new stock of cushions in the shop, I noticed that one of my cushions that I had made for Mint last year had made its way into Junes issue of House and Garden. It was made for a wonderful project called ‘Inspired by the Fabric’, whereby I was given a piece of handwoven, indigo dyed fabric from Jordan, and I was asked to indeed be ‘inspired by the fabric’ and create 6 cushions. Please see an earlier post (Spring 2016) for more details if you are interested, but the cushion shown below in House and Garden was inspired by the selvedge of the fabric, which was very frayed.
Also shown below is a picture from LivingEtc, March 2017, which shows one of my embroidered cushions, obtained from Mint, lying on a bed in a rather wonderful bedroom….I was so excited to see that!
So yes, Mint really has done me proud!
