Four adventurous Harvest Mice ramble through a lush, plentiful corn field to harvest what food they could. Having filled their stomachs they decide to head home, though they quickly realise they cannot remember which way they came. In a hope to find out, these four mice clamber up each other to the very top of a corn head in a feat of acrobatics. Though the bottom mouse doesn't seem too pleased! However, the expression of the mouse on the top says it all with Oh no! They have headed in much deeper than expected.
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted, the mice and corn were achieved through quilting, appliqué, painting and embroidery. These techniques create the different textures from the soft warm fur of the mice to the plentiful heads of corn. Unfortunately, the three-dimensional relief doesn't show particularly well in the photos, so please take a look at the depth of the piece to get an idea of the overall effect.
