Hogging The Hogweed

Hogging The Hogweed

There is no plant that stands so tall in the garden during the autumn and winter months than the Hogweed. Its once green sturdy stems have dried out turning to a paper-like structure and its once nectar-rich flowers have seeded giving much food to the garden's wildlife. This little harvest mouse is not likely to share its favourite food source. Having climbed the hogweed it wraps its tail around the rigged stem and surveys the garden for more treasures.


A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted and the mouse, stem and seed heads were achieved through quilting, applique, free hand embroidery, three dimensional techniques. These techniques create the different textures from the soft warm fur to the seed heads.
