MOTHER AND CHILD, AN ART QUILT


 

Reflections of Snowy Owl is an art quilt made from a photograph taken by the artist.

 

  • This art quilt represents a foray into fiber arts developed from a prior ceramic tile photo silk-screen work, Frog Tile, part of a tile mural of Forest Lake Critters. The frog carrying her froglet on her back is based on a photograph.
  • The photograph is transferred to white cotton fabric by means of a five-color separation silk-screening with fabric paints instead of ink.
  • Image is enhanced by air-brushing and hand-painting.
  • Black cotton fabric borders are sewn in place.
  • Cotton batting is sandwiched between a layer of black fabric backing and the embellished front panel. Quilting is done in swirling patterns of thread painting with multicolored threads.
  • Displayed at Solo Show: Teapots and Textiles, Maine Fiberarts, Topsham, ME, September-December, 2016.
  • Date: 2016.
  • Size: 13.0 " x 11.0".
  • Available for purchase. Price: $100.
