Stainless steel laser cut in cross-stitch lace. Stunning.
Oh how surprisingly, awfully gorgeous this cross stitch table is in real life. Using a 16th century Italian lace as a starting point she created this laser cut stainless steel table top. Super tasteful. Playful. Witty.
The picture can not give back it’s nobility at all.

“My textile practice spans wallpapers, fabrics, surfaces and desirable products for interior environments. Working across a wide range of media, including laser-cutting, embroidery, crochet and ceramics, I seek to find new and innovative ways of exploring traditional crafts.
Using antique lace, doilies and embroidered samplers as a starting point, the aim of my final collection is to subvert these traditional practices by ‘digitising’ their structures and reproducing them in unexpected materials.”
