Oak Leaf Cushion in Red & Cream
Oak Leaf Cushion in Red & Cream is a contemporary, limited edition, textile piece by multidisciplinary artist, Lora Avedian. Using embroidery to enliven archive folk drawings, Lora’s applique technique uses a freehand embroidery machine to masterfully translate elements of historical narrative into stitch. The original drawings were made by Pennsylvanian Germans between the 1700s and 1800s and the colours used by Lora are informed by the subdued palette of these artefacts. As a nod to her interest in patchwork quilting, Lora has used a technique inspired by a visit to the recent Gee's Bend Quilt exhibition in London. This cushion is custom made in England and exclusive to The New Craftsmen.
