"Overgrown" by Adam Pritchett

$ 1.00


Bower Bird was a postcard project celebrating the art of collecting, curating, and personal artifacts. Each of the 90 contributing artists created a limited edition series of postcards with subjects ranging from historical memorabilia, house plants, fossils and bones, national park attire, ancient books, and more. These objects may not have monetary value, but a rich history of our lives, interests, and personal influences- the collection is a modern day cabinet of curiosities.

About this collection:

"My piece of work is about my collection of antique sewing threads, and cotton reels. Over the last 5 years, I have been collecting threads from thrift stores, eBay, and just about anywhere I can find them. My whole piece of work was made using colors from a now discontinued brand of DMC, called flower thread. Which means certain colors of this thread (maybe even the ones in my piece) could be the last of their kind—this preciousness makes my collection all the more special to me, and adds a magic to any embroidery work that I create with them."
