Hillary Fayle Embroiders Leaves In Suspended And Delicate Designs

Artist Hilary Fayle uses embroidery techniques to create delicate suspended designs in dried leaves.  She first cuts shapes like circles and mimics the contour of the actual leaf, and then stitches thread into a variety of intricate patterns. The complex designs mimic the veins of the plant in their twists and weaves.

Fayle first began stitching on unconventional materials while she was studying embroidery at the Manchester Metropolitan University in Manchester, England. She started with found materials and fabric and later moved onto leaves once she returned to America. The choice to use them was a logical extension of Fayle’s desire to use renewable, sustainable, and environmentally friendly materials for her artwork.  Photos by Natalie Hofert Photography.

In a series called Falling Leaves, Van Keulen cut letters and symbols out of leaves and scanned the results, effectively creating a unique (well, it is kinda based off Helvetica) set of typography.  (via) Read More >
