Indigo dyed (shibori) over cotton dyed with fiber reactive colors; hand stitched raw edge applique (boro) and quilting.

A Fuller Craft Museum exhibit asking for fiber art with text urged me to to create a more direct statement

thanmy usual lyrical landscapes. Inspired by maps, the visual beauty of the two poles is obvious, as are the

dyed words “melting” and “warming,” especially given recent reports on climate change. Using boro, an

age-old Japanese tradition of patching and mending with energetic hand stitching, is particularly appropriate,

since truly hope the earth will be mended. Read excert from Artscope Jan/Feb 2019 review here.
