Have you met Danielle Clough? She's an embroidery artist from South Africa who has taken the art form far from the bounds of the traditional stretched-fabric hoop. She has put yarn and needle to sneakers, city fences, and, as you'll see, old tennis and badminton rackets.
I appreciate how the colors of the rackets inform her yarn color choices.
Some neat pixelization going on in this one:
Hooray for transforming trash into treasure! Visit Danielle's website to see all of her work, including plenty of "traditional" embroidery (of the poop emoji, Chewbacca, etc.) on fabric.
I'm Debbie Way, an artist and writer who enjoys making things.
