A while ago we featured the work of Nottingham artist Donya Coward who makes work of art from Victorian antique embroideries, fabrics and haberdashery and vintage Nottingham and French laces. We couldn’t resist sharing these adorable freestanding Jack Russell Terriers. As each piece is bespoke and made from one of a kind materials, projects can take up to eight weeks to complete. Preserving materials that would be thrown away is key to her work and she deliberately incorporates the marks and imperfections. Her favourite places for sourcing materials include Newark Antiques Fair, Swinderby, Portabello market and Montreuil in Paris.
