original quilted textile art by k3n

“After the Fire”

“After the Fire” was inspired by an original painting done by a friend of mine following her visit to Australia after the bush fires. The background, a beautiful piece of hand-dyed fabric - is freehand machine quilted to represent the strata of the Earth – bedrock, tree roots, landscape, bark, trees, leaves and sky – the elements that will sustain and regenerate even after such devastation. The charred and blackened tree is created from different kinds of yarn. Hundreds of hand sewn beads represent the ash particles still clinging to this mighty giant’s scorched skeleton.


The quilt measures 35”x 18” and is for sale.
