Gabriel’s Mantle; 52” W X 26” L X 2” D; Machine Pieced and Hand Quilted Tee-Shirt Remnants, Old Quilt Remnant; $900.00

Gabriel is the pure spirit identified with the divine attribute of Yesod- the longing to connect. The mantle, like a quilt, serves the practical function of keeping someone warm protecting them from the elements. In this case, it also serves as a symbolic divine representation.

The archangel, Rasiel, presides over our actions transforming the knowledge of information and ideas into the wisdom of achieving our deepest levels of understanding. The mantle, like a quilt, serves the practical function of keeping someone warm protecting them from the elements. In this case, it also serves as a symbolic divine representation.

Holy, Holy, Holy; 77” H X 96” W X 8” D; Machine Pieced and Hand Quilted Tee-Shirt Remnants, Old Quilt Remnant; $1800.00

In Isaiah 6:3 of the Hebrew Bible, one Seraphim exclaiming to another: Holy, holy, holy, is The Holy One: the whole earth is full with This Glory. Stating the word three times in a row emphasizes complete devotion to what is good and righteous.

Machine Pieced and Hand Quilted Tee-Shirt Remnants; $495.00

Quilts made of tee-shirt logos are a way to consolidate, combine and celebrate important memories. The problem becomes what to do with discarded sleeves and the edges? Free form patchwork means that there is no pattern. I take the pieces and combine them in any way they come together. The fact that circles are the most challenging seams and knits are the most stretchy materials creates quite the challenge, but it is also part of the fun to be able to bring it together into a workable format.
