This unique embroidered chair is make from hand-dyed fabrics and I have employed my distinctive style of appliqué and free motion embroidery techniques to create it. It features a tern sitting on its nest and I have exploited the available space on the back of the chair to continue the story: the mate is flying in to the nest, providing a lovely aspect of continuity.
The wood on this vintage chair is painted in green chalk paint which has then been distressed and waxed. My signature colour palette echoes the magnificent range of colours found in nature, and it was important that I chose a paint colour to really complement the natural colours of the textile design.
