The base of this unusual art piece is a rectangle of purple wool. Attached on top is a section of hand-dyed dryer sheet, a matching purple button and a thread-wrapped coil of copper wire. Decorative hand stitching was used to secure the layers together and add pizazz to the entire composition. Notice how much of the stitching radiates out from the purple button creating a circular pattern. Zoom in to see the detail. The copper wire coil, which reminds me of a caterpillar, provided the inspiration for the art piece’s name.
The entire grouping was attached to an 8”x10” frame covered with white canvas. Added to the back of the frame is a paper barrier to protect it from pests and dust, a sawtooth hanger, silicone bumpers to help keep the frame level as well as aide in ventilation and an itemized label describing the art piece.
This wonderful specimen would make a lovely addition to your home.
