Art and Embroidery of Jane Hall: Reflections of Natureby Jane E. Hall
This book explores Jane's extraordinary world, the materials she uses, her techniques, and her understanding and interpretation of nature. Packed with ideas, inspiration and information, it will appeal to all embroiderers and textile artists everywhere.Exciting, exhilarating, unbelievable are words that capture the brilliance of Jane Hall's amazing embroideries. The sheer magic of her work is in its beauty and its awe-inspiring attention to detail. Stitched and woven in pure silk and gold threads on delicate fabrics, embellished with fragments of shell, irridescent feathers and semi-precious stones, her work takes on a quality that is both startling and memorable. Flowers, leaves, grasses, toadstools, butterflies and bugs are translated into three dimensional scenes and panels, born of a love of nature and an intuitive understanding of the natural world. Occasionally, fantasy elements creep in, with delightful representations of mermaids, angels and fairy rings, each tiny scale, feather or textured detail lovingly stitched and interpreted with breathtaking precision. Jane works almost entirely by hand, evolving each piece, adapting ideas and changing the image as it naturally develops.
