7656  Remembering Laurel  ($50)

Michele Bilyeu
Salem, OR   USA

Width: 9"   Length: 12"

Materials/Techniques: Free-pieced cotton fabrics, ink jet photo printing of Laurel Burch quote on fabric, and glass beads. Liberated, freely pieced flying geese and curved seams to invite the 'freedom of birds in flight' and the 'mysteries of the earth' with Laurel Burch's cats and cat angels peeking out from everywhere.

Artist Statement: When Laurel Burch left home at the age of 14, she had a paper bag of clothing and a rare bone disease that created over 100 fractures and resulted in her death in 2007, at the age of 61. We all face challenges in our life. May we learn to face them with the exuberant joy, passion for color and zest for life and living that Laurel Burch had.
