Kenny and Penny by Eleanor Thomas
"Kenny and Penny" is a charming piece made by artist Eleanor Thomas using the Bunka embroidery technique. The technique, which originated in Japan, involves punching special rayon thread through the fabric using a unique hollow needle.
Born in Ontario, Eleanor Thomas has lived the majority of her life on the east coast, more specifically, Cape Breton, and has spent just as many of those years working with different craft media and techniques – knitting, crocheting, quilting, weaving, leather work, painting and wood work. In 2001, she was introduced to Bunka and since then has completed over 80 pictures of birds, flowers, scenery and animals. A large majority of these pictures have won awards and red ribbons at a provincial fair level.
