Vintage needlework sculptures

I am absolutley smitten with the husband and wife team of Frederique Morrel, who rescue vintage needlework and turn them into these amazing pieces of art.


From the artists-

‘Our products have been carefully re-made using vintage needlework saved from oblivion in the interest of the redemption of the painstaking work involved in their original creation. When wandering around markets or garage sales we’re often very saddened to see discarded embroidery. ‘

You can see much much more over on their website, including a pretty cool behind the scenes on how they made one of their creations.
