Tea in Paris Fabric Pitcher

Another charming use of fabric in the Missouri Fiber Artists display at St. Louis Lambert International Airport Christmas 2014 was this fabric pitcher.

According to the sign, the piece was made by Joyce Pion and includes wool, cotton, waxed linen and "found objects. I can see where wool fabric was heated to become felt and embroidered to make this wonderful tribute to having tea in Paris, France.

The pitcher reminded me of Victorian-era crazy quilts where fabric pieces are cut in different shapes, sewn together and embellished with hand embroidery.

Look at the details including a little map of downtown Paris.

So delightful. C'est la vie!
