Well, I was prompted to return to his wonderful works this month by the subject of another Homyachok Challenge: Quilling Task No. 11 - Paintings and Ornaments.
This particular challenge requires quillers to produce a creation which has been inspired by a particular art style, so of course I immediately thought of William's influence on the 19th Century 'Arts and Crafts' movement and set to work!
I wrapped each of my teardrop shapes with gold-edged, pearlised gold strips to give them extra definition, and made the branches from narrower 1.5mm strips for added depth.
Here, for reference, is the original William Morris 'Snakeshead' design:
And here's another photo of my quilling, which now forms the front of a very special greetings card:
It's my pleasure to enter this work into the Homyachok Challenge. Wish me luck!!
