This is a wonderful flower. Looks as if it could be based on a waterlily to me - and so cleverly arranged in its vase.

Do you have any idea who made it?

I have never been a fan of slug Honiton but the interesting thing about this piece is the progression of the work and the record of that.  I think this is beautiful

Liked the work and the  progress of the work.

Comment by Lorelei Halley Administrator on October 19, 2013 at 3:11pm

I couldn't decide where to put this comment.  This piece is apparently by a "lace artist" Teresa Whitfield, who "makes intricate drawings of lace from museum collections.  This design is from the Honiton "slugs and snails" era (when design deteriorated so badly that all the little bits looked like slugs and snails, not leaves and petals.  But she has work the bits as tape laces.  And instead of linking the bits as she worked, she hung in a ground after all the bits were done.  Unusual.
