Fabrics were stitched to a foundation fabric and embroidered in the style of crazy quilt patchwork with decorative threads. The floral fabric is recycled or upcycled from a vintage silk kimono. Also includes dupioni silk and yarn-dyed cotton. The flower is outlin quilted with gold metallic thread.

Inspiration and Influences. The Tokonoma Series was inspired by the Asian art displayed in tokonomas alcoves. As the sacred center of a traditional Japanese home, tokonomas were reserved for treasured items like scrolls or calligraphy, beautiful kimonos, ikebana flower arrangements, miniature bonsai trees, and fine ceramics for tea ceremonies. The items displayed were changed for special occasions, according to the season, or to create different settings and atmospheres.

Autumnal Influences. The copper colored flower petals are reminiscent of autumn flowers and are complimented with a dark teal blue colored rayon decorative thread.
