I met the lovely people from Jude’s Ice Cream at a Innocent Creative evening back in November 2013. Then fast forward a few months and they approached me to make a very special ice cream cosy for their favourite flavour. I love a new challenge and this was no exception. I think that Jude’s are on to something and maybe ice cream cosies are the future. You heard it here first!
This was a commission for Christmas from Martha to Nick. It’s a 2.5 x 2metre quilt backed with 100% wool. The constellations, in the middle, are the northern hemisphere (kit bought from Haptic Lab) Martha came up with the concept and i made it happen! The surrounding shapes are inspired by the mountain ranges around Chamonix (Mont Blanc, Aigle de Midi, etc.). It’s definitely the largest item i’ve made to date and took me roughly 95 hours (give or take…)
Here are some detailed pictures from the commission.
The stars where embroidered in glow in the dark thread! Thank you to Martha for the picture.
