Les Brodelaires (Our embroidered Illustrations)
are one part broderie and one part Baudelaire! These knotted and naughty creations are an intricate part of the narrative poem and the rhythm mimics the feeling of stitching among “other things”. Behind every pleasant face are strings and knots holding a woman in her place.
Every image has been drawn and sewn by Ms Parasol.
Twenty-five Brodelaires are featured in An Object of Pleasure and we create new ones all the time!
They are currently presented for curation in shadow boxes with wooden embroidery hoops and frayed white cotton edges. They are available for exhibit and purchase.
Materials: French floss on quality cotton. Wood embroidery hoop 12.7cm (5x5in). Black wood shadow box 24.8 x 24.8 x 4.4 (inches: 9.8 x 9.8 x 1.75)
