Serving as a base for this unusual art piece is a rectangle of warm gold wool. Attached on top is a piece of my eco-dyed cotton fabric. Centered over that is a reclaimed strip of kantha cloth. On top of the entire composition is one half of an over-sized black snap. Decorative hand stitching was used to secure the layers together and add pizazz to the entire composition. Zoom in to see the detail of both the stitching and the fabrics. The overly-large snap 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.
