The essence of Isobel’s practice is an exploration of the sculptural potential of three-dimensional embroidery stitches. Using an evolution of fly stitch, the core form is created from layered, independent red triangles of thread pulled into geometrical order by blue tensioning threads, causing vibrant interactions of the complementary colours.
