Childhood Sounds

Childhood Sounds


A sensory evocation of childhood and a celebration of family life.

A beloved grandmother’s needlepoint work is celebrated and treasured in a bespoke frame of walnut and willow.

Preserved under glass, the needlepoint is encompassed by a generously deep frame inlaid with marquetry.

The inlaid designs are inspired by an ancient orchard viewed by a child from a bedroom window and signify the sensory memories of the child now emblazoned on the heart of an adult.

The delicate images evoke powerful and precious memories of the sound of a Little Owl hooting from the ivy clad gatepost, the sight of dancing butterflies and the scent of a fresh meadow. Each private perception is associated with fond remembrance of a grandmother.
