I'm inspired by the resourcefulness of quilters past who repurposed fabric scraps and constructed something utilitarian that's just as pleasing to behold. More than that, each quilt is an original, relying on the remnants at hand and the patience and skill of the quilter.

With 'Pieced', I had the opportunity to showcase the bountiful qualities of natural woods in all their many hues and unique characteristics. Nine wood types are presented in their natural state; no color additives were used. 'Pieced' is organized in a repeating 9-block diamond pattern on thin plywood substrates. Like a quilt, plywood is a sandwich of layers and stronger for it.
Maple, poplar, walnut, cherry, redwood, purple heart, teak, Spanish cedar, African mahogany, plywood, adhesive, clear acrylic
Lumber stripped on table saw, smoothed on planer, diamond-shapes cut on miter saw, edges rounded with router and sanded, glued and clamped to plywood substrates, blocks arranged improvisationally; all handling of wood was done by artist
