The Scissor Tree

Artist
Saskia Wassing
Description
This playful composition is inspired by my collected sewing notions and of my love of nature. In this imagined embroidery the tree of scissors stitches and creates for a visiting wee bird…
Bright and metallic threads are embroidered onto an appliquéd silk ground using my basic domestic sewing machine as a drawing tool. I stitch freely over the surface creating rich texture, pattern and details. Framed, ready to hang
