Carol Dowsett - I Miss You Susan
Inspired by the religious texts of loss in families, the Bloomfield coverlet made me reflect on the loss of my sister 50 years ago. The quotes I used in my hanging, from Steve Jobs of Apple, are not religious but nevertheless, I have found them inspirational. The ferns, as background images, are used as they imply 'eternal youth', which of course rests solely in my memory of Susan.
Materials and techniques:
Oakshott cottons and fine cotton lawn.
Sun printing with ferns and leaves.
Hand and machine quilting.
