Inspired by a vintage brooch in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The delicate flower is represented using coloured pencils emulating an embroidery. The vibrant colours bring vintage design into the contemporary.
Meant to be a pattern, after completion, the simplicity of the flower was decisive in keeping it as a singular piece.
