Precise Hand Embroidery by Jessica Dance Creates Visual Representations of Common Words and Phrases

10 days ago   |   By Colossal

Textile artist and model maker Jessica Dance recreates everyday objects and ideas using fabric, felt, and thread. Dance typically utilizes embroidery to produce details and text on her three-dimensional objects, but in these works the thread-based practice takes center stage. The artist combines typography and embroidery in series that show words and phrases in their visual form: “harvest” spelled out in a cornucopia of fruits and vegetables, and “good as gold” in shimmering metallic thread on glamorous red velvet. You can see more of Dance's textile work on Instagram .
