Quilled Sunflower and Mountains


Art: Quilled Sunflower and Mountains by Artist Sandra J. White
This is my Quilled Sunflower and Mountains and it is a one of a kind piece, handcrafted by me in my New Hampshire studio.

It is my original design. It is a 16" x 20" quilled and custom framed piece. It is triple matted and framed in a black frame as shown.


What is Quilling?
Quilling is a very old craft. Its name comes of the old practice of trimming the gold edges from books, and then winding the narrow strips of paper around feather quills, using the quill for the tool. Once rolled into circles and pinched into various shapes, the paper is used as texture and detail in pictures.

My own technique uses the quill work as a background and details to cut-outs of wildlife. The quill work simulates the feathers in the duck and birds, the scales on the fish, the veins in the wildflowers, and the fur on the moose.

I want to create pieces that will make you stop and rest awhile, pieces that you will really want to be a Part of Your Life.

This is a beautiful piece that I designed and created -- then I started to do the quilling and wondered why the spaces for quilling were so big. It took at least 20 hours to finish the quilling, but as it moved along its way, I was very pleased with the piece. And I love its movement. The Sunflower and the Mountains.........I hope it speaks to you as it has speaks to me.
