I just wanted to share the images that are the inspiration for my latest commission.
The images are of two Murano Glass tea light holders. They are really lovely, glowing beautifully when the tea light candles are lit. The commission is for 6 cushions, 4 patterned and 2 plain. I am planning to weave them in silk, a matt bourette silk and a wonderfully glossy spun silk yarn which I hope will reflect the matt surface of the holders and also the golden when lit.
The colours are lovely, too, pale mint green, lilac, peach, rich red and lemon. Mmm…..
