Findings: Embroidery Artists

January 14, 2016

Have you ever heard of hand-embroidery? Beberapa waktu yang lalu ketika saya lagi buka-buka feeds di instagram, saya nemu hasil embroidery yang apik banget. Biasanya kalo denger kata 'embroidery' yang muncul di kepala adalah kerjaan nini-nini buat sarung bantal atau taplak meja, gambarnya bunga-bunga vintage atau pedesaan. Kalo yang ini beda, karena gambar yang dirajut lebih kerasa modern-vibes-nya, dan makin pengen nyobain gimana sih serunya hand-embroidery itu.

Karya-karya pertama yang saya temukan dan suka banget adalah karyanya Sarah Benning, dan seperti yang ada di bio instagramnya, karya-karyanya cenderung punya nuansa kontemporer. These are her works,

6. @stitchyouup - horror, humour, nostalgia (that's the description on her instagram page ok)



7. @baobaphandmade - (you decide the category)


Bisa kita lihat, embroidery art sebenarnya bisa berupa apapun, nggak terbatas dalam satu tema aja. I actually found many more instagram account that published embroidery artworks but it will take a long post to share them here. But you can always search through suggested accounts button from one of seven account I already shared them with you.

I hope you're inspired as much as I am. Because f i n a l l y, I made one too ;)
