Some of my lace
Some pieces of lace that I have designed and made.
‘Ye Greek Gods!!’ was designed for the Lace Guild Exhibition ‘The Four Elements’. Earth is depicted by Persephone who entered the underworld, air by Hermes, the winged messenger of the gods, fire by Zeus who dispensed thunder and lightening and water by Aphrodite who rose from the waves.
This occurred while I was making the third section. My husband held his hands up ‘I didn’t do it he claimed’. I suspect it was the sheer weight of so many bobbins that caused the pillow and stand to tip over.
The design for the lace in this tray was taken from a Jacobean cushion cover.
