UCA BA (Hons) Hand Embroidery student Lucy Martin created this piece called ‘Emerald’. This is the second wall hanging in her ‘Epoch’ collection. Lucy said the collection is "inspired by Mineral Specimens such as Celestite, Apophyllite and Green Calcite, this project demonstrates the intrinsic links between art and geology." She continued "I absolutely loved stitching this piece using bespoke, hand dyed fabric and both traditional and contemporary hand embroidery techniques. I have also used resin to create my own quartz pieces within this piece."
