Unique flower corsage.
Els Robberechts has been a well-known hatter in Ghent for 20 years. The starting point for her Van Eyck creations are the plants depicted in the Ghent Altarpiece.
For the corsage, Els opted for a miniature embroidery hoop as a basis, a reference to her craft. The hoop is lined with silk velour, a rich material that in the past was often used for covering haute couture hats. She applied her own drawings to the silk velour.
Materials: silk velour, wood, plastic foil.
Dimensions of the brooch: 6.5 x 4 cm.
