“The artist is the confidant of nature, flowers carry on dialogues with him through the graceful bending of their stems and the harmoniously tinted nuances of their blossoms. Every flower has a cordial word which nature directs towards him.” – Auguste Rodin
Inspired by both the organic and geometric, artists of the Art Nouveau movement celebrated the graceful forms of nature by using flowing, curving lines in their creations.
They believed that all types of art were equally important, and focused on crafting beautiful and expertly made objects, from the decorative to the utilitarian.
Art Nouveau was often finely detailed, yet used flat perspectives inspired by Japanese wood block prints—a combination that created a very recognizable style.
Part of Collection #30, these hand-sewn and hand-embroidered pieces feature a floral pattern that resembles Art Nouveau. A double layer of 100% organic, medium-weight cotton jersey is embellished with glass bugle beads and sequins that lend the surface texture and intricacy.
These two garments are stunning. I only wish I had the ability and patience to do all that hand stitching. Due to a disability from an illness I can only machine sew these days or hand stamp. I dream through your inspiring creations.
These are my most favorite pieces that you have ever created!
On my wish list!!
Absolutely stunning! Are there any plans to make this floral pattern available as a stencil template? I would love to use it for future projects!
This is really beautiful.
Is there any possibility that a stencil .pdf is available for this design? I love the light airiness of it, the use of open/background space makes the design seem as though it’s floating. I’m planning a wedding dress, and adding “design a stencil” to the already-overgrown list is probably not realistic!
Thanks so much.
Thank you for your comment, Deborah! The Flora stencil is a stencil that was designed for and is solely used in our Collection, and as such is not available for DIY use. We do have a few other floral stencils on our stenciling website page that may interest you; you can find them here:
