Embroidery stitched directly through a vinyl record sleeve. Liner notes appliqued and laser cut. 3D-printed eggs mounted in relief.

12x12x2 inches, framed in acrylic.

     I created this Wilco album as a special request from a good friend. Wilco is one of her favorite bands and this is her favorite album of theirs. The cover features a birds nest over a grey background, no logo or title to the album. I thought the birds nest would be a perfect way to showcase how dimensional thread can be. I also wanted to add a few extra details to this project. I started by stitching the next in about 10 colors of wool thread using varying stitch lengths for added depth. I then used the inside of the album as appliqué fabric to stitch and laser cut birds flying around the nest. As a finishing touch I 3D printed three small eggs to place in the center of the nest.

The albums take up to 8 hours to embroider and can contain over 200,000 stitches. The series is created and designed to be hung together so you can add to your installation wall as you discover new pieces I create. Each of the albums comes with a signed certificate and is framed in acrylic and measures 12" x 12" x 2".
