Bunka Shishu, Japanese "Punch Needle" embroidery, is a form of embroidery that originated in Japan. A special punch needle and rayon threads are used to create lovely works of art. The rayon threads, combined with specific stitching techniques are very versatile and can be used in many forms to achieve various designs such as traditional Japanese scenes, flowers, animals or people.
These are a few of the pictures I made between 1975 and 1985. They must be framed in glass, using a special stretching technique to enhance the beauty of each piece. The threads are not secured at the back and protection from snagging is essential to preserve the work.
