Maker's statement

1993: This piece was completed shortly after "Whitework quilt", a large hanging. Both pieces came about as a direct result of decorating my flat and all the tools involved in the process. In this piece (as opposed to "Whitework quilt") I used a finer cotton with more dense stitching - to raise the objects depicted into more relief.
