Great Zimbabwe 1 & 2

42" X 46"; fiber, hand-dyed and commercial fabric, gold lame, pieced; hand and machine quilted, embroidered; with embellishments of bead, shell, metal, feathers

I started this set of quilts as a project in a class at the 2012 Quilt Surface Design Symposium. The smaller piece was initially intended as the central stripe of the larger quilt; however, the pattern was too dominant and a smaller stripe was created. My wife said that the smaller piece is a quilt in its own right - thus the work is now a diptych.

Zimbabwe was included in the 2014-2015 juried exhibition at the Columbus Metropolitan Library sponsored by the Ohio On-line Visual Artists Registry (OOVAR)..
