Re-inventing the art of needlecraft

I am absolutely blown away by this gorgeous work from artist Claire Coles. How incredible is this unusual way of incorporating old fashioned embroidery and needlecraft? Her designs include ceramics, furniture, wallpaper and badges.


Found furniture

Wallpaper- she sources vintage designs, embroiders over them and stitches different pieces together.

Love story badges created from ripped up novels, she also has a series of wallpaper badges.

I want everything!
