Fiber Wall Hanging
Created by Joan Schulze
"Essence" is an off-again-on-again series about chocolate. The images used in this wall piece were given to the artist by Alice Medrich, chocolate expert, author, and lecturer. They collaborated years ago on a quilt which was in an exhibition at the Oakland Museum. The black and white images are glue transferred and polished by rubbing with a cloth to bring out the chocolate-like sheen. This is a silk, paper, and cotton quilt, machine stitched and quilted.
