Pieced Quilts

The Pieced Quilt Series stems from my interest in an art form that traditionally has been practiced by women. Pieced quilts, also called patchwork quilts, were often a tale of transformation. Cloth scraps or discarded clothing became intricately patterned, functional works of art. I created my first glass quilt when I had a number of leftover frit mixes, like scraps of material and realized that these were the basis for creating “luminous quilts.”
