For those who love hand made lace.
Valencia is a Spanish province, located in the Mediterranean part, has a great tradition in ceramics with arabesque motifs, palaces, mosques, houses of artisans, etc ... located on the Silk Road for thousands of years, it was a silk producer, and has a guild in the Colegio Mayor de la seda de valencia with royal edict.
As a researcher and at the same time Valencian, I have enjoyed with great passion the ability to reproduce, through the threads and technique of bobbin lace, an arabesque pottery from the mid 1300s.
Braids are two pairs with spirit point at the center, with continuous threads. It belongs to the geometric arabesques, of which we enjoy a lot in the Valencian kitchens and the noble palaces.
This ceramic belongs to the great mosque of Valencia. located on Avenida del Cid.
In this case I used merino wool, from Bart & Francis.
A very interesting lace. That room is marvelous. Is it from the mosque you mentioned?
yes, the great mosque of valencia, has been restored many times, since it has been damaged after the Arab expulsion of Valencia by the Christians, then some Roman invisibility etc ... there is a museum of the great mosque that you can admire the ruins and the fragments rescued from the old mosques.
