art | rachel machenry

I think one of the biggest reasons I'm excited to be working for Craft Ontario is because I absolutely love the intersection between art and functionality - and there lay craft. Of course I love art for art's sake as well. But threading together the things we need and the things we find beautiful is really what creates the aesthetic fibre of our lives.

Below are embroidered fabric works by Rachel MacHenry. Blankets, a bench, pillows and the decorative enhancements on an ottoman style ball.  The detailing is exquisite and the colour selection subtle - but somehow the embroidery still pops!
