Book of Hours was originally made for the exhibition Forget Me Not at Gallery Hanahou, curated by Kristen Rask of Schmancy. The show traveled to Gallery Lele in Japan as well.

Inspired by the idea of a forget me not, a physical object that recalls a person, I made this detailed piece about remembrance. The imagery: diamond, bee, honeycomb, and knotted bow, directly relate to a quote from the book Metaphors of Memory: A history of ideas about the mind by D. Draaism. The quote below is typed on a crème paper and adhered to the reverse of the piece with photo corners....

"In books of hours miniaturists drew jewels, coins, flowers and beehives. Valuables collected like nectar from flowers to be stored in the honeycombs of our memory.
-D. Draaisma"

This is an original, one of a kind piece that I loved and labored on. I do not plan on remaking this, so it is truly special.

DETAILS...
+ Unbleached muslin
+ 5" embroidery hoop
+ Navy, yellow and baby blue thread
+ Army green cotton fabric backing
+ Hand stained German (fancy) embroidery hoop
