Rustic Flowers, a hand embroidered piece of textile and rust art exploring the beauty of pressed and decaying flowers and how we treasure these to remind us of happier times. The central flower has been created using rusting powder to permanently dye the fabric, perhaps the most treasured and faded flower within them. The outer flowers and their swirling, curvilinear lines are delicately embroidered with dark brown and rust brown threads, featuring hints of metallic shimmer through them.

The combination of rusting and stitches creates a piece of artwork that is intriguing, delicate and minimalistic. It encourages replaying the memories of summer blooms, treasured flowers and capturing their beauty through pressing them - even though we know eventually they will fade. The fading and decaying is part of natural beauty and is to be embraced and celebrated. This artwork is a perfect daily reminder of those pressed flowers we treasure.


Rustic Flowers is framed and ready to hang in your home, or that of a loved one. It is the perfect gift for those who collect flowers and press them, for gardeners, those who love nature and for those who need a gentle reminder of their precious floral memories. An ideal gift for many occasions including birthdays, weddings, anniversaries or to say I'm thinking of you. Rustic Flowers is a perfect finishing touch to any room of the home.


The combination of the rusting powders and embroidery means that it is impossible to exactly re-create this artwork; it is unique. Rustic Flowers black frame measures 55 x 45 centimetres approximately with the inside of the cream mount measuring 30 x 46 centimetres approximately.


Part of the Nature's Reminiscence collection; there are other complementary pieces here.
