Wire and textile art: balloons



I’ll fess up. This idea started with a commission from a customer who wanted balloons and this particular slogan for a friend who had suffered with mental health issues. It really hit a chord with my customers though so I’m sticking with it. The balloons are made by layering cotton and vinyl, to create that balloony shine, and are finished off with white embroidery and the twisted wire outlines. The slogan itself is made with wire and leatherette and the words are couched onto the leatherette. The whole thing is backed with felt and finished with a loop for hanging. Of course I can change the embroidery to read anything you like. Just let me know via [email protected] and I’ll get stitching.

Measurements: 20 x 15 cms
