Quilt

Object: Quilt          Sold

Materials: Porcelain/ceramic tile, Millefiori, Marble & Pebbles with Black Grout on Concrete

Dimensions: 17.5" Diameter

Method: Direct onto a pre-cast stepping stone.

This is a proof of concept piece for a much larger project. The premise is based on a quilt.Gathering porcelain as well as ceramic tile of varying color and texture is akin to having many strips of leftover cloth, a great creative palette from which to fashion a quilt.

This "stone" quilt's final form will take shape as an edging to separate rock from grass in a garden. It will be twelve inches wide and have a full length of roughly 85 feet. Broken up into manageable lengths, these smaller rectangular quilts will combine to form the whole.

In addition to the tile: cut, nipped and smashed into many shapes, additional texture and color accents will be added using pebbles, millefiori, glass and tumbled marble.

The landscape this quilt will live in is already linear and stark, and so the design echoes this with all the pieces falling within a clean grid pattern.
