Hydrangea Square Cushion

Lora Avedian
£350
Hydrangea Square Cushion is a contemporary piece by multidisciplinary London-based artist Lora Avedian, which is inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement.

Influenced by Arts and Crafts era print designs and English gardens, this cushion is typical of Lora's work, which often translates elements of narrative into stitch. The palette is inspired by changing seasons – the blue hydrangea flower offers a pop of colour against the rusty-orange leaves.

Each element of this piece was crafted and stitched into place by hand. The hydrangea petals are made from laser cut vintage silk taffeta, which are applied individually to the base using a machine. The hand-cut linen leaves are appliquéd onto linen using viscose thread.
