HAWKING’S BUBBLES, 2002 55" wide x 52" high
‘Hawking’s Bubbles’ was inspired by a photograph of soap bubbles. The image immediately struck me as a futuristic version of the traditional crazy quilt. Technique: each ‘bubble’ was individually constructed from batiks, velvet and tulle. Bubbles were machine and hand pieced, then applied onto a black background and stuffed with batting. Beading was added around the bubbles.
