Turn to the Sky (Custom Photographic Site Specific Picnic Blanket Quilt)
Based on my project Turn to the Sky, I will make you a custom site-specific picnic blanket! I print the images myself in my studio on cotton broadcloth. The cloth photograph is then quilted into a 60 x 60 inch picnic blanket using all cotton batting, backing, and binding.
Option One: You provide me with a high res image of a place that resonates for you, per my instructions. I will then make your custom picnic blanket using your own photograph.
Option Two: I will take photos of a striking spot in the sky somewhere accessible to me and use this for your picnic blanket. Let's discuss what features are important for you. I typically visit the site before I make each blanket and choose a place to lay down and daydream toward the cosmos. In this spot, I take a picture of the sky, and create a picnic blanket which acts as a mirror to that vision of the sky in that moment.
The resulting blanket can be carried through time and space allowing you to visit your daydream spot any time of day, indoors or out. Pictured here are two blankets made for exhibition, one has sold and the other is still available.
*** Please be sure to include your active and correct email address for this item. I will be contacting you directly to discuss your custom picnic blanket so that we make it most beautiful and resonant for you. ***
