Mr X Stitch presents The Cutting (& Stitching) Edge – November 18th, 2009
|Share the love...||
Welcome to the Cutting (& Stitching) Edge! I’m Mr X Stitch and I’ll be your guide to the best in contemporary embroidery. Each week I’ll showcase someone who is rocking the world of embroidery and textiles.
Natalie Horton is a third year student currently at Bath Spa University studying a BA in Creative Arts. She makes cells.
Well alright, technically all sentient beings make cells, but Natalie makes them from felt and PVC and stitching.
There’s something very modern and stylish about them. And also something slightly fetishistic.
It’s great work, from a technical perspective the work in stitching the cells together is commendable. It will be interesting to see what she comes up with next.
For more of her work, including her knitted cell patterns, check out her Flickr photostream.
Mr X Stitch is a manbroiderer, cross stitch designer and runs www.mrxstitch.com,
the number one contemporary embroidery and needlecraft blog on the planet.
He can often be found hanging out on the Craftster needlecraft boards or at the Phat Quarter on Flickr.
