Serving as a base for this unusual art piece is a forrest green rectangle of wool. Attached on top is a reclaimed scrap of kantha cloth and scrap of red wool. Adorning the entire composition is a blue sugar skull. 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 shiny blue sugar skull 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, another one of my all-time favorites, would make a lovely addition to your home.
