Tui 3D | Cathy Jane Designs

This Tui is totally handmade with love. It is an endemic bird of New Zealand, common in most gardens all over New Zealand and off shore islands.  Cathy has tried to capture the bird's incredible iridescent feather colours, and unmistakable white throat tuft and neck plume feathers. It is completely stitched by hand, using specialised techniques.  Every design is unique. It is carefully pinned to perspex, and encased like a museum specimen.

  • Each design comes with its own certificate of authenticity and signed.
  • Dimensions: Height: 12cm width: 18.5cm depth: 7cm.

       Cathy Jane is a NZ artist who creates intricate handmade embroidery art inspired by nature. Combining a lifelong obsession with all of nature's creations with decades of experience in art and design, her artworks capture the beauty of NZ’s flora and fauna.  Each art work is made up of hundreds of tiny stitches, made via hand stitching and on a simple sewing machine without a base fabric.  The stitches are sculpted into shapes that represent a threaded version of Cathy’s found specimens, that are as close as possible to the real thing.
