Texture

Today's prompt in Our Beautiful World was chosen by me and it is
texture.
I wanted this word to make at last a blogpost about a beautiful exhibition I had seen back in January at Tellogleion Institute.
It was a textile art exhibition by Voula Masoura and Yiota Andriakaina.
Isn't Voula Masoura's work amazing? These pieces are huge!
The Four Seasons

All pieces are handwoven.

There are all kinds of different types of texture on her work.









There was also a part of her blue and white glass vessel private collection which of course I adored.




Yiota Andriakaina's work was different.  There were knitted pieces....
and embroidered pieces.





And there were also these pieces of art made of little balls of yarn.



Have a look at this short video hubby took of Andriakaina's work.
