Paola Zanda – Re-arranged

Charming Korak

I recently exhibited my works in Colmar and I had the immense fortune to see Pascale Goldenberg’s Korak collection. I was very impressed: the motif of the goose flight was combined with the technique of cross-stitching and that of the patchwork.

I wanted to rebuild a corner of these masterpieces to honor the memory of a wonderful discovery. I used hand-dyed and commercial cotton fabrics, Aida canvas and perlé embroidery threads. I did the assembly by machine, the handmade quilting is invisible because the originals are not doubled.
