Artist Statement: The pod shape continues to be a source of inspiration for me. I enjoy the pod variations Mother Nature provides in so many different plant types: some long and skinny, others fat and round.

Many plants, including Wisconsin’s Milk Weed pods pop open and are a source of food and nourishment for insects and birds. As the plant grows, the pod itself changes, some times not fully developing. It is the irregular growth patterns that are so interesting to watch unfold.

Size: 42″ x 37″

Materials: 100% cotton fabric and cotton batting and thread.

Techniques: Dye painted on flat surface, image lifted onto the fabric. Machine quilted.
