Meticulously-Stitched Embroideries Sculpt Fuzzy Woodland Creatures with Thread

Illustrator Chloe Giordano embroiders miniaturized animals that are so thickly sewn, they take on a sculptural appearance. Her compositions consist of layers of fine, thin threads and, together, these meticulously-stitched marks visually blend color together like a pointillist painting. At the same time, the tiny fibers are visibly fuzzy, which is ideal for The artist’s subject matter of woodland creatures like deer and rabbits.

Giordano has been practicing embroidery since 2011, after graduating from college with a degree in illustration. She continued to experiment with her artistic process, using thread and hand-dyed fabrics to construct these pieces, in addition to plush sculptures.

Giordano keeps up an Etsy shop and occasionally posts her embroideries for sale. Follow her on Facebook to see when she's got her next piece ready for purchase.
