Creating one of my abstract pieces is a long process. Each of the blocks are 2"x2". There are blocks that have Hermes fabrics that are laser cut and wrapped around the pieces or the blocks are embroidered with an icon. Before I start a large piece I usually create a digital; template that will serve as a blueprint for where each color will go. Then we start to embroider. I will create hundreds of blocks and then start to lay those blocks on top of the blueprint until the image starts to form. There is a lot of editing involved as the piece starts to take shape. Once I decide on the final layout all of the pieces are glues in place and then nailed.
