Shogun. Pieced contemporary by Dorothy Russell


Wall-hanging made for the opening exhibition of the Royal Armouries in Leeds.

Having been to a superb exhibition of Japanese art and crafts in London several years before, I decided to base this piece of work on the family crests of some of the the major families in Japan.

Cotton and silk chiffon, silk painted, hand beaded, piped and entirely hand quilted.
