Reclaimed Needlework of Louise Saxton

I’ve seen a growing number of fiber artists out there utilizing vintage needlework into their art, (like artist Frederique Morrel mentioned previously) and I think the results are just so stunning. Using all reclaimed work seems to lend itself to a rich tapestry you don’t often otherwise see.

Artist Louise Saxton uses gloriously saturated needlworks to stitch together these amazingly bright and bold art piece inspired by nature. You can see more of her work over on the NAVA gallery, or peek at it in person if you’re lucky enough to be in Australia at the Heide gallery.

    Oh, I wish I could do this! I inherited a lot of old, hand-embroidered table linens and each has a stain here or a tear there. Can’t part with them, don’t know what to do next. Thank you for the inspiration.
