Little Laura 4

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.
