as always i like to add detail of the larger work that i do -- please enjoy

past life

cotton cloth embellished with the orient - this piece is composed of square pillows that form a barrier to guard oblong pillows -all these pillows nestle within raffia-- between the pillows lies another barrier of woven carpet warp to add another sense of dimension -- this piece represents the knowledge that is passed to us all by way of other lifes from the past

detail of red sky at night

i have posted a detail of red sky at night -- scroll down to see the entire piece --

red sky at night

currently a new piece in my ongoing series exploring the idea of "quilts" beyond the normal expectation -- this piece is entitled - red sky at night - it is composed of rug canvas to which i have applied knotted carpet warp to form squares that enclose handsewn fabric pillows - the name comes from the old sailor addage - red sky at night , sailors delight -- i have tried to create a piece that reflects the wonder of the colorful sunsets that one sometimes can view as one looks to the west over great bodies of water
