Wilber, Nebraska, the county seat of Saline County, is also the official Czech Capital of the USA. Each August, thousands of people, from all over, come to celebrate Czech Days.
I was inspired by the embroidered details of their traditional costumes. I combined different elements from a variety of sources to create” Czech at Heart”.
Material and Construction
Attached to the design is a swatch showing the color palette that I plan to use. I will use a dimensional medium to mimic the stitched details giving the finished work both visual and tactile texture. The final design will be painted and then sealed with a clear coat.
On the base, some details from the Nebraska map will be added to show viewer the location of Wilber in relation to the Nebraska border.
