This was a piece I made for my textile art course way back when in September. Our project was on vessels, so I chose to do eggs and embryos and other such fun things. I'm into images of female power in a big way, and fertility really comes into that for me. I'm not saying that it's womans only job to have babies, and that that's the only thing that makes women powerful- I just adore the imagery.





Bird Embryo


Frog Spawn


Human Embryo (I should've stranded the thread more on this one and I think I will redo it)


Elephant Foetus


Felting the eggs (I did one half, then the other, then I embroidered on one, before stuffing them and sewing them up.)


Here's some back up work (The drawings in the background)


And a machine embroidered felt elephant foetus.


It was fun!

Beautifully conceived & executed.

Cuddly & inviting. Just like women and family

Be who you are
and say what you feel
because those who mind don't matter
