Lady’s Slippers are often also referred to as Moccasin Flowers, a name befitting these shoe-like, native orchids. The shapes of the flowers varies from species to species, not unlike how the styles and artistry of moccasins changes from people group to people group. The applique technique featured on this slipper is based on a pair of (presumably) Dakota moccasins from Minnesota circa 1860-1900. In the original moccasins, tiny strips and triangles of silk were reverse appliqued to the moccasin vamp, with a decorative feather stitch embroidered alongside.
Giclée prints are printed on archival cotton rag. Inks are water based and free of Nickel, PFOS, PFOA and VOC’s, which are harmful to the environment and cause degradation of prints.
Prints are all matted; an 8×10 print comes in a mat to fit an 11×14 frame, and 11×14 matted prints fit a 16×20 frame.
