Natalya Aikens – House Commission

Our July challenge for HOUSE/COUCH STITCH is underway and we’d like to share this house commission by Natalaya Aikens. The architecture of St. Petersburg, New York City and her Russian heritage informs her work.

Natalya recently featured this house commission on her blog.  The layering and the maps peeking through are spectacular details.

Natalya generously explains her process on her blog. There are details as the piece emerged, as it progressed  and as it was finished.

There is a workshop video available through the Cloth Paper Scissors Interweave store if you’d like to get an insider view of her working process.

Please take some time and browse through her website and leave a comment. There is lots of inspiration to be found on her site. Thanks Natalya!
