The art and embroidery of Jane E. Hall – Reflections of Nature
Out of Print.
“Exciting”, “exhilarating”, “unbelievable” are words that capture the brilliance of Jane Hall’s amazing embroideries. The sheer magic of her work is in its beauty and its awe-inspiring attention to detail.
Stitched and woven in pure silk and gold threads on delicate fabrics, embellished with fragments of shell, iridescent feathers and semi-precious stones, her work takes on a quality that is both startling and memorable.
Flowers, leaves, grasses, toadstools, butterflies and bugs are translated into three-dimensional scenes and panels, born of a love of nature and an intuitive understanding of the nature world.
Jane works almost entirely by hand, evolving each piece, adapting ideas and changing the image as it naturally develops.
This book explores Jane’s extraordinary world, the materials she uses, her techniques, and her understanding and interpretation of nature. Packed with ideas, inspiration and information, it will appeal to all embroiderers and textile artists everywhere.
