Glacial Stitches

Svalbard Glacier recreated in cross stitch

These are some images of my latest work in progress which has followed on from my Arctic artist residency last October.

I started the work off by embroidering a glacier in blue thread (above). Having finished embroidering the image of glacier I set about ‘calving’ it up into small pieces as you can see in the images below. These pieces very in size from around those that are about the size of a penny piece up to some which are slightly larger than a fifty pence piece.
