Lotus Butsudan Cover


Wet felted merino, silk and alpaca fibre with 3D nuno felted sari fabric petals incorporated into the piece. Embellished afterwards with machine and hand stitching and glass seed beads.

The Buddhist symbolism of the Lotus inspired me. The Lotus blossoms and seeds at the same time, expressing the principle of the simultaneity of cause and effect. It also represents one’s potential to achieve enlightenment, growing in muddy water, yet rising and blooming in purity above the murk.
