Gingerbread With Icing

Karakul wool, white pre-felt, wet felting, pre-felt technique, surface raised with stitching


The inspiration for this piece is coming from my Hungarian heritage where gingerbread cookies are decorated with icing. The motives very often are floral and imitate natural forms. In Hungarian tradition and folklore different plants also have different symbolic meanings. I have a great interest in this deeply rooted wisdom.
