Madhura Bhide
Shortlisted
Country: India

Dimensions: 122 x 91
Artist Statement/ Description/ Method: This is my original design. While thinking about the theme, lotus attracted me. When at the end of the day I sat down for a bit, trying to meditate this image popped up in my head. I joined few A4 sized papers and drew my design with pencil on actual sized paper. I created the color scheme and made top center with prepared machine applique. Added borders. And quilted the top on my domestic machine. After the binding I added embroidered bumble bee as according to the Vedas, the buzzing of a bee is symbolic of the fundamental sound of the universe. Through out my process I used gold heavy weight thread here and there. Finally added lace to complete the look I wanted.
