|Crow 14" x 19.5"|
Monday, February 17, 2014
I'm not quite caught up on my new goal of finishing one piece/week, but here's the latest. From Edgar Allen Poe to Native American culture, crows symbolize many things to many people; knowledge, mystery, evil, curiosity and cleverness. This bird is based on a picture my son drew when he was four (and used with his permission.) This art piece is part of my series of recycled fiber collages: the Recycled Sky. It is made from a minimum of 65%-75% recycled fiber - all my leftover bits and pieces from larger projects, donated scraps from other quilters, snippets of thread, an old T-shirt. The crow is made from leftovers from one of my son's Halloween costumes, while the eye is a glass bead.
