IN A NUTSHELL
A set of four small,handmade screen-printed patches of my original old cemetery designs in copper on dark charcoal gray. Good for vests, tees, jeans, totes, home decor, and altars.
These designs are based on classic funerary imagery often found on 17th-19th century New England headstones. The full set includes the crowned Death's Head representing the soul's glory in death, the Winged Hourglass representing the fleeting nature of life, the Soul Effigy representing the soul's ascent to Heaven, and the weeping Willow Tree representing classical mourning imagery.
While this imagery is heavily inspired by common motifs in historical stone carvings, I've been careful not to copy any one historic design too closely and to draw my own interpretations freehand, out of respect for the original gravesites.
Set of 4 Old Burying Ground Mini Patches, Copper on Charcoal
-4.5x4.5” artwork + roughly 1/2” blank border
-Hand printed in professional, Jacquard screen-printing ink on flannel.
-The black ink is matte. The gold, copper, and silver inks are metallic.
-Fabric has been pre-washed and ironed without detergent or fabric softeners.
-Inks have been batch tested for color-fastness in the washer and dryer.
-Colors may vary slightly from what you see onscreen, as all device screens are calibrated differently. The colors are beautiful in person!
-I make all my patches by hand in small batches. They each contain little differences, slippages, and minor quirks/imperfections. The patch you receive may not exactly match the patch in the photo, but it will match the design and colors you select and be of equal quality.
