This one is the first of this series that I did. It has a very geometric stacked-up pattern feel, but the bronze on bronze pattern made with metallic machine sewing thread, here used for hand embroidery seems to me to give it a kind of sixties feel:
I really love these kinds of Troika pottery designs and wish I had the money to collect some. I grew up with these kinds of ceramics and it looks like they are making their way into my work.
As usual, the first one I made is probably my favourite. I think it’s because the scale is right, I like the Troika aesthetic, and I find the patterning of the geometrics rather restful.
