Materials: Found objects and a section of a vintage quilt
Dimensions: 29" x 29"
Image Statement: Using multiples of seemingly mundane objects puts into perspective the abundance of life and the capacity to keep things as if for a "rainy day". Paper clips, keys, bottle caps, buttons, nails, plastic spoons, and old clock parts are found in most homes. These and so many other, often vintage items are repetitively hand stitched into meditative patterns on sections of old quilts, bringing an extraordinary new life to otherwise everyday things.
