Oriented Emeralds

Lorraine Johnson Brotsky, Vernon, BC

Dimensions: 61" x 33"

Techniques: Piped-piecing, handmade Chinese frog closures, machine-quilted

Artist’s Statement:
In creating this quilted wearable art, it seemed a logical blend to work a Chinese jacket design onto a Japanese kimono structure as traditionally these styles of clothing were pieced, appliquéd and often quilted.A contrast bias piping flange defines the curved motif sections, and also fashions the Chinese frog closures.

Award:
Excellence in Wearable Art – First Place
