Inspired by her love of nature, Lindsay Taylor moulds, sculpts, weaves and entwines hand-dyed natural fabrics into three-dimensional works of art. Employing a variety of techniques, she recreates items such as bags, shoes, gowns, hats, even cups and lampshades in organic form, reflecting the intricacy and exquisite beauty of the natural world and instilling them with dreamlike quality evocative of fairyland. With the emphasis placed firmly on showcasing Lindsay's unique style of embroidered art, this book also provides an insight into her life journey - the evolution of her unique style of work, her inspiration, and the methods and materials she uses.
