The Crane Wife

The Crane Wife – Redux

A collaboration piece between myself and fine artist Danielle Pebbles. The piece was created as a submission to a gallery show called Material Matters, the premise of which was to take what is often viewed as a craft medium and make it fine art.

Using my work experience in machine embroidery, I decided to revisit the crane wife but explore it in a new and unexpected medium, and found the visual transformation of a woman to bird as the perfect way to explore the transformation and evolution of craft, from age old stitching to contemporary mechanized embroidery.

The Crane Wife is a mix of custom machine embroidery, silk appliqué, acrylic, ink & embroidered thread

I was bored one day. I started drawing a mask and it turned into Sally.
