Royal Astronomical Society

Title: Orbit

Description: A planet with rings

Maker: Jean Rooke, retired teacher

Techniques Used: Embroidery - long and short stitch in Crewel wool.


"I love the pictures of Saturn with all its rings and could visualise those worked in bobbin lace which is light and open. For the planet itself I used wool to give a more solid contrast."
