Helen Hazon – Recycle – Water

Water is vital for life on Earth so we have to recycle and care for this resource. We are very fortunate in the developed parts of the world that most of our water recycling is taken care of and I am forever grateful to the people who work hard to make this “magic” happen.

There is more that we can do as individuals to make the most of our water supply and not be wasteful.

This quilt’s  colours depict water in various states – fresh and clean, muddy, polluted etc. The swirl design reflects a waterwheel and also water disappearing down a drain. The corner circles are Yin/Yang motifs showing balance in using and recycling our water.

Fabrics used were all recycled – sari silks for the water and an old pillowcase for the background and backing. The other materials were leftovers from previous projects.
