Artist Justyna Wołodkiewicz fuses unique embroidery with abstract clay design to produce gorgeous three-dimensional objects emerging from traditional wooden hoops.

The age-old art of embroidery receives a playful twist through this project, which merges thoughtful and meticulous line work with a seemingly carefree spunk. The pieces feature a range of color, and place the clay objects strategically, helping the artist create a different narrative. The abstract pieces depict scenes of blue skies and flowers, along with more recognizable objects like clocks, water and human anatomy. The clay figures emerge from the threaded frame, creating a multi-textured piece of art that's both stunning and unconventional.

Embroidery has been historically considered a past time as opposed to a legitimized art form, prompting artists to creatively showcase their talents in more innovative and creative ways to put the difficult and time-consuming medium back on the map.
