We interrupt this painting to bring you Pottery

pinecone+bowl We interrupt this painting to bring you PotteryWhen I lived in Austin TX I spent many years taking pottery classes. I love pottery, wheel throwing and hand building, almost as much as I love to make art quilts.

It was a battle of the art forms for many years. I love them both, but there are not enough hours in a day to do both and still have a life. Finally I had to choose between the two. My love of quilts did come first and I was not going to invest in a kiln so gave up the pottery.

I really liked carving my pots, giving the surface a texture. I realize this is also what I like about quilting. The quilted stitch also can carve out a surface texture in a quilt. graven+Images+B We interrupt this painting to bring you Pottery

It was during these pottery years that I made my quilt Graven Images. This is a quilt based on the designs I found on gravestones in new England.

I wanted to make a quilt from fabric that looked like it was carved out of stone.
