The Art and Embroidery of Jane Hall: Reflections of Nature Reviews
Do you need some inspiration? Are you looking for a feast for the eyes? Then Jane Hall's book is just what you need. Her reverance for nature is stunning in her embroidery. The manipulation of fabrics and threads produce life like 3-dimensional versions of the subject matter she is representing. The pictures and narrative combined makes you think that maybe you need to try this type of embroidery just to see if you can do it. If you are an artist of any type this book will inspire and maybe just make you look with keen eyes the next time you take a walk in the woods or your own backyard.
I discovered this book in a small all-purpose art supply store and knew that I just had to add this to my bookshelf. The artist obviously has spent plenty of time in Nature just observing the conditions and the changes of each season, and we are given a collection of pieces that sent me outdoors to look more closely at the miracles of change and transformation in the natural world. I am not an embroiderer, but you don't need to be one to appreciate this truly marvellous book. More more more!!
This is a very nice book. How's how she came up with her ideas. Not really a how too book.
This book is giving me new ideas and different kinds of materials to use other than beads and floss that I have been using. I will teach from this book as soon as I have some butterflies done. Good Book.
This book is a thing of beauty. It's worth buying just for the pleasure of leafing through it to look at what glorious things can be made by the hands of an artist. Remarkable.
Some of the loveliest and exquisite needlework I have ever seen. I cherish this book. It is a delightful feast for the eyes and very inspiring. The photographs are beautiful.
I own many books and I have to say this one is by far my favorite. Many fiber artist and embroiderers will be drawn to this book, not only for the exquisite photography of Jane Hall's work, but also for her ability to express what inspires her. You will find that we all share the same inspirations and aspirations for our projects. I recommend this highly. Not a how-to book.
Janet's book of "Relections of Nature" is a wonderfully illustrated book. It really is a relaxing study tool, for anyone loving both, the wonder of nature & instects, to stitch...
