When you are a quilter…

….everything looks like a quilt.

This wall sculpture started in a class with Nick Agar (turningintoart.com) at Craft Supplies in Provo, Utah.

I was frustrated by the scale of the original turning.  Most of my surface design methods were too detailed in the early stages.  It turns out that I don’t have a good sense of what the carvers call ‘modelling’ for 3D effects on a 2D surface.  So the only solution for me was to divide, and divide again, until the scale of the work seemed right.

Nine-patch is a common way that quilters divide space.
