Stitchy Snippets - Blossom
Dancing in a soft breeze, Laurence Aguerre's incredibly delicate flowers are hand embroidered, woven, braided and shaped into form. The process is lengthy as well as a journey of exploration for Aguerre. 'Sometimes I have in mind the idea of a specific flower, sometimes I create very freely, and let myself be guided by the materials and techniques.'
These beautiful floral displays perfectly encapsulate fleeting moments in time and appear to preserve the fragility of nature. To find out more about Laurence Aguerre's stunning work check out her website here.
