Broken Dishes

I thought it might be nice this time around to share a bit of my process.



After determining that Delft and my other blue pottery was my inspiration, I thought about how best to represent it. There is a traditional quilt block named "Broken Dishes" which came to mind, as did lots of shards of those broken blue and white dishes. Since I always at least try to justify my use of fiber (and more specifically art quilt) as a medium in my work, using a traditional quilt block as my jumping off point made a lot of sense. A mosaic of broken bits complements the block name as well. With those elements in mind, I am off to execute the idea.
