Hat Viragot (Six Flowers)

0 loves

When cleaning out my mother’s home we found a stash of “family” embroidery patterns drawn my grandmothers/grandaunts.  The patterns are all hand drawn of traditional Hungarian flower embroidery.  I thought the patterns would make a wonderful transition to glass.

 This panel is 10” x 10”.  It is made with ~90 individually cut, polished, wrapped, and soldered glass pieces.  The “stitches” around the flowers and the stamen are wire work on top of the glass.   The entire piece is finished in a black patina.  The total weight is ~1 lb 6 oz.   The piece took approximately 20 hours to build.
