Kaoru Hirota (Hipota)

At first glance you may think that these threaded artwork are crocheted but they are not.  Embroidery artist Kaoru Hirota creates these intricate, tiny pieces with a strong sewing needle called a Nuibari.  The stitch she uses appears to be a corded Brussels stitch, a 3d type of embroidery. The artist has had a solo and a two person exhibition and has been featured in many craft books recently using her brand name, Hipota.  Would love to get hold of some of her pieces but alas, they art only sold in Japan.

You can view more of her work on her website, Facebook and Instagram.
