In addition to traditional quilts, quilting services, and hand-woven
pieces,we also embellish our original works with beads, wire, felt, and
non-woven fibers; on dolls, bags, and quilts. As with many of our products,
we do not stock an inventory: most works are one-of-a-kind
creations. Commissions are most welcome. For a consultation and
Title piece: "Brigid," a 9.5-inch (24cm) bead sculpture on a fabric
armature, which won first place in the 2005 challenge show sponsored by The
Beaded Pony of Stevensville, Montana, and a Reserve Grand Champion
award in the 2006 Ravalli County Fair. Original design by Judy.
"Reclamation," a large wall
hanging inspired by the impending removal of the Milltown Dam on the
Clark Fork River above Missoula, Montana. The 100-year-old
rubble-filled timber dam, failing and no longer needed to power the
sawmill, holds behind it huge deposits of toxic mine waste sediments
from the copper mines at Anaconda, 100 miles upstream. The elements
in the quilt represent the impacts on the environment of man's
ambitions, with the crumbling dam in the center. Hand-made fiber
mask, fiber, rust, and bleached fish, with copper and beadwork dam.
Fiber and bead mask on
stamped Angelina fish swim through the dam.
rust-dyed fish swim in deep water below the dam.
