The new lace curtain

By spotogspindel | September 7, 2015

The family lace panel is finally finished!

It is ca 40x80cm  and took about 1800 meters of thread. Above you can see the embroidery all done, and below, I´ve used water to remove the soluble fabric. I´ve used a sea-green tulle between the layers of soluble fabric, to make sure the stitches stay where they are supposed to. Working with a see-through one-colored pattern like this, it is essential, to make the faces stay as they are, and not change expression and shape.

I am happy with how it turned out. Quote a lot of work, but well worth it! I have to find a good way of displaying it, once it goes on the exhibition. Still plenty of months till that.

So this is my entire family from my Grandmothers side: children, their spouses, children, children´s spouses, grandchildren, grandchildren´s spouses and great-grandchildren! The intricate lace pattern, where the faces overlap each other, is in a way a symbol of how people interact and are involved in real life.

    What a portrait. Fantastic, instead of a family photography this is so much more alive. I don’t know anyone but you, a little bit up from bottom to the right?
