Morwenna Catt – new work for Keepsake

I’m making a series of small sweetheart cushions, reminiscent of the cushions made in WWI by injured soldiers. These are delicate, stitched from printed silk and stuffed with lambs wool.

Each is printed with the image of a different tree, if you look very closely you can see that the image of Grenfell is layered subtly through the branches and leaves.

In myth and folklore trees are imbued with symbolism and the power to heal. Each of these trees carries a word, printed onto a burnt fragment of silk and pinned to its heart.
