Switching Up Materials • Wire Quilt

I have been investigating quilts recently because we want to redo our bedroom. I'd love to have a handmade quilt but there just isn't enough time in my life to make one. As I was exploring ideas online, one totally unrelated quilt appeared and I love it for a completely different set of reasons. It isn't practical for a bed at all.....

This quilt is a wonderful example of a material switch-up. Instead of using fabric, the artist Jan, instead chose wire. In place of a glorious artwork of color, she created a magnificent study of line. The shadows created must add great depth. This "quilted" wall hanging is available from The artist is only identified as Jan and there is no further link. I'd love to know more about this artist and see additional work. Add a comment if you can provide further information.
