Animal portraits made from real fur/hair and fibres....
These commissioned portraits are created by using photos of your horses profile and incorporating real hair, from both the horses coat and mane.
Images are created with a range of silk and fleece fibres and details added with free hand machine embroidery.
The mane hair is encased between very fine layers of pure silk fibre which holds the individual strands in place allowing it to be stitched over.
Plum Pony was a Commission for Christmas 2014. The Ponies coat was sent via the post and created into the image of Plum by using emailed photos. The work was sent back completed in time for a fabulous Christmas surprise. The family were overwhelmed by the image that used Plums own mane, tail and coat hair. The images below show close up details of the fibre artwork.
