CHERRY BLOSSOM PIECES

The first Cherry Blossom piece that I created was on a 12”x12” Hermes scarf box. I embroidered the cherry tree directly onto the box which is no easy feat. The box itself need to be flattened, attached to stabilizer and then placed on the embroidery machine to be embroidered. This is a tricky process since embroidery machines were never intended for this process, through a lengthy process of trial and error, the first background was created. The embroidered background contains about half of the elements, All of the background stitching, tree branches and flower buds are stitched directly onto the surface material.

The Blossoms

Designing the flowers were one of the biggest challenges. Lace embroidery traditionally involves designing the embroidery element to be self standing, meaning that the thread has to hold its intended shape without the use of fabric or a background element. The specific colors for the piece are chosen and dozens of lace flowers are created for each Cherry Blossom. 

EMBROIDERY

Once the first piece was stitched I added the lace flowers directly to the surface of the box. I wanted to arrange the flowers to look like a natural cherry blossom tree, mixing the shades and colors and sizes into the arrangement. The end result was a truly dimensional artwork,

different colors

Lately I have been experimenting with the Cherry Blossoms in different colors. I wanted to see how the pieces looked in different palettes. I have created tonal variations and even one in golds and purples for my Bergdorf Goodman collab. It seems not matter what colors the Cherry Blossoms are embroidered in, they look amazing.
