Facescapes: Connecticut's People

Last week I posted the beginnings of a wool roving project and I'm finally done! The piece is for Connecticut Fiber Arts Collective's upcoming show, Connecticut Landscapes. Although my faces aren't a physical landscape I believe they represent the landscape of the community and culture that makes Connecticut such a unique and diverse state.

Facescapes: Connecticut's People
24" X 16.5"
The wooden slat across the top and the beads in-between the faces
were made from an old map of Connecticut!

Each face was stitched using free motion quilting so no two are alike
and many are just silly!

This was the pile of wool roving I started with when creating the faces.
So much fun with so little time!
Please stop by Prospect's Public Library to view the complete collection with all members art work on display during the month of December!
