Large Cream Riverbird Cushion

Rose de Borman
£320
Large Cream Riverbird Cushion by Rose de Borman is a silk-screened and hand-painted silk cushion decorated with a riverbird motif.
Large Cream Riverbird Cushion by Rose de Borman is a one-off painting, as are all her cushions. Each one is created by silk screen-printing silhouettes by hand and then hand-painting the colours into the shapes, using dyes and a paintbrush. The silk is then steamed and washed, which changes and fixes the colours. No two pieces are the same, and the whole process is a labour of love that takes days.
Material: Hand-dyed and hand-painted Silk front, back and piping. Feather insert.
Dimensions: Height: 45cm, Width: 60cm
Care Instructions: Dry clean only.

Process

Rose hand cuts paper shapes which she exposes onto the silk screen to create a void, or controlled space, which she then delicately paints by hand directly onto the silk.
