Cathedral Windows

The quilt imagines the consciousness of our early ancestors, who gathered in sacred groves as their place of ritual worship to the mystery that set the rhythm of daily life - under the archway formed by the branches and the canopy of endless sky.

Theirs was an imaginary of intimate connection to Earth's processes of creation through destruction.
