Pugin's Angel flies in

February 27, 2018

Continuing my thoroughly enjoyable journey with the Royal School of Needlework Certificate course, I recently submitted my basic goldwork module for assessment.


Inspired by Augustus Pugin, the father of the 19th century arts & crafts movement, I chose to bring one of his sketches for an angel to a new life in gold threads. Pugin's angel found it's way to the interior of a catholic church, above the sacristy. The angel kneels reverently, while swinging a thurible (incense burner) toward the holy sacrament.


My version uses many different goldwork materials and stitch techniques. The finished mounted piece is 20 x 21cm.
