4. Frederique Morrel Needlework Sculptures
french company frédérique morrel exhibited 'the slice of life' - 'passe murailles' collection at paris 2010 maison et objet. all pieces are hand made - giving each animal their own character. the husband and wife team says: 'our products have been carefully re-made using vintage needlework saved from oblivion in the interest of the redemption of the painstaking work involved in their original creation. when wandering around markets or garage sales we're often very saddened to see discarded embroidery. we think about the love, time, craftsmanship and patience that went into creating such beautiful things and find it so sad that they end up unwanted and for sale for a few dollars. all of those wonderful tablecloths, doilies and cushions and the skills that are evident in those discarded things are in danger of being lost to future generations.'
