Faith - 550

Title: Faith
The Design:   The diamond shaped design is adapted from a series of floor tiles in the 15th century Chapel of St. George in Windsor Castle, England. Lace artist Laura Friesel has used individually worked tapes of Milanese lace to interpret the original interlaced graphic design. The internal motifs were chosen to complement the heart and cross patterns linked by the square.
The Material:   70 Egyptian cotton
Dimensions: Image size     16” x 16”             (40.6cm x 40.6cm)
Framed size   18 ¼” x 18 ¼”      (46.6cm x 46.3cm)
The Technique:   Bobbin Lace dates from the 15th century and employs threads wrapped around separate bobbins. Using traditional weaving techniques, the lace maker manipulates each individual thread providing unlimited creative opportunities in design. Pins support the threads as they are woven together to create the pattern.
