We experience day and night as part of a 24 hour cycle. Dawn and Dusk explores the yin and yang of our day – light and dark, warm and cold, soft and hard.
Dawn and Dusk is a collaborative piece between Elaine Jones and Dori Settles. Jones created two like semi-circles art quilts out of fabric, wood, beads and trims. Settles created a plaster mold using one of the semi-circles and cast the quilt in glass using the pate de verre method to highlight the embellishments. These two pieces are mounted on a cold-wax painted cradle board, painted by Settles.
This piece is traveling to the SAQA 2016 Benefit Auction, which starts Sept 16th. Many artists have donated quilts already, you can check out the pieces here – http://www.saqa.com/auction-quilt2016.php
