Deep in the woods four foxes warmly huggle together taking shelter in a hollowed-out tree trunk adorned with moss. One awakens to see the first dusting of snow that has touched the last of the deep red hawthorn berries and fallen leaves in the surrounding woodland.
A number of techniques and mediums were used in the creation of this piece. The background is fabric painted, the foxes, trunk, berries, leaves and rocks were achieved through quilting, embroidery and three-dimensional techniques. These techniques create the different textures from the crisp dried out leaves to the long soft fur of the foxes. 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.
