Roll by Pamela Zave

This quilt is an impression of the giant forces whose currents shape our world.  In the atmospheric layer, they create the weather.  In the geological layer, they create the land  and the oceans.  At the surface of the earth, they meet to create a thin, bright layer of life.


In this design the jewels of nature colors peek through ponderous coils of neutrals.  The neutrals change subtly from top to bottom, first gray then taupe then brown.
