Statement: The explosion of the dyes as the ice melts, the intriguing shapes formed and the mingling of colours produced feel like one big fiesta. A delightful, enlivening second transformation occurred during the quilting process. The border’s shapes echo those created by the dyes and were inspired by Matisse’s paper cut outs.

Materials/Techniques: Ice and hand dyed fabrics, fused, appliqued, machine quilted
