Embroidered Leaf Art By Hillary Fayle

In an amazing study of masterful craftsmanship and delicacy, Hillary Fayle, a student of embroidery art, has created a series of leaves that have been cut and embroidered with exquisite and delicate decorative patterns.

She starts by coating each leaf in a non-toxic preservative that stiffens them up and protects them. Then, she cuts them into various forms and embroiders them or simply puts various embroidery stitches them onto their uncut surfaces. “I generally try to use renewable, sustainable, and environmentally friendly materials for my unique art, so this was an obvious choice,” explains the artist.

Besides her astounding leaf artworks, she has plenty more creative ideas and also creates amazing leaf-cutting designs, a few of which you can see here as well. Her website, full of this incredibly detailed art, is definitely worth checking out!

I would say that this is beautiful, but what earthly good is it? What in the world would you do with it?

Art needs not to be of any use. The advantage is you can enjoy it without obligation.
