With inspiration from all parts of daily life, CreativeClowns is much more than just the embroideries we see here today. It is a vision of making embroideries easy, accessible and exciting without pointers or limiting rules.
The embroideries are created dynamically and the pattern gradually grows over the weave as they are created. The artists share the embroideries and both work on all pieces simultaneously, without knowing the end result beforehand. The embroideries is a reflection of the daily life, where ugly, crazy and beautiful are mixed into the big picture that tells us something about the world we live in today. The artists tackles new shapes and colors with curiosity, and are working with both small, big, flat and 3D shapes. The biggest embroidery so far is over 500 000 stitches big and measures around 1.2x1.2 meter.
