Criminal Quilts Miniature Embroidery 11. Shadow Work Hands

Image of Criminal Quilts Miniature Embroidery 11. Shadow Work Hands

Criminal Quilts miniature pieces are made in response to my research into prison mugshots of women from the late 19th and early 20th century. I made quilts about these women as a way of giving comfort and gentleness back into their lives of poverty and prison. This small piece focusses on the hands shown in the photographs with hand embroidery in dark pink on two layers of silk organza.
The tiny quilt is 15x16cm and mounted on white board approx 30x30cm. This is sold unframed but there is a frame available for it on request - professionally hand made light wood box frame (add £65 plus additional postage). Signed on the board and dated 2013.
