‘A time piece – Mr Jude Law plays Hamlet’

The garment was donated by actor Jude Law and is the costume he wore to play Hamlet. He chose the following quote from Hamlet and wrote them in his own handwriting. I then hand stitched his handwriting onto the front of the garment. The back stitching is inspired by watching murmuration of starlings…alluded to by the word ‘augury’ interspersed with tiny antique time pieces. When Jude saw the finished piece he said : I’m blown away! It’s beyond what I could have imagined. I’m so thrilled to be a part of this project and to see my own small gem stone so beautifully preserved! It’s truly a thrill!
