This embroidery art, by an artist based in East Yorkshire, UK, named Lucy, aka "Peacocks and Pinecones," is absolutely mind blowing. On her Instagram, the artist describes her work as:
Contemporary hand stitched photorealistic embroidery.
The pieces somehow capture the exact look of glass, liquids, metallics, plastic, and more—it's really hard to convince myself that they're made of thread!
I think my favorite is the "Love Balloon," but honestly, they are all incredibly impressive. To see more, check out the Peacocks and Pinecones website.
