Artist’s Statement:
Anne and I are sisters and fibre artists. We combined our individual areas of artistic expertise to create this piece, which began as a colour study and evolved into an interpretation of fire—the first of a series of elements. Together, we experimented with surface-design techniques and designed the layout. We collaborated long-distance, shipping the quilt back and forth and consulting by phone and computer as the piece evolved.
