A sculpture found in San Antonio is the inspiration for this piece. My intention for this piece was for the observer to feel the movement of the flames and their heat as well as see and experience the sun spots and the craters on the “ball” of the sun. An analogous colour scheme of mostly reds, oranges, and yellows help to create the feeling of heat. I used a bit of blue-green in the centre for a complimentary colour contrast and to create a cooler feel to offset the warmer colours or heat around the edges. Students start with the design drawn on the canvas and the centre painted. All will be slightly different so there is lots of opportunity to make this piece your own. Students will make their own cording and learn interesting stitches and techniques. Threads used include DMC Perle Cotton, Kreinik Braid and 1/16” Ribbon, Threadworx Floss, #5 Perle Cotton and #8 Overdyed Kreinik Braid, Edmar Nova and Boucle, Rainbow Gallery Petite Frosty Rays, Gold Rush 14, Caron Soie Cristale and Gloriana Duchess Silk and Lorikeet. The piece is embellished with Swarovski crystals and pearls. This piece is for the intermediate stitcher.
