Entry #: TT 1709
Entrant: Colette Dumont
Dimensions: 51" x 62"
Materials: 100% metallic/37% nylon.
Techniques: Hand appliqué, machine appliqué, couching, thread painting, trapunto, beading, embellishments, bias work, machine piecing, original, digitized embroidery, domestic-machine quilting and longarm quilting with a stitch regulator.
Credits: The photo, from Gilles Archambault, was used only for the owl. The background of the center medallion is based on my photo of my home exterior.
Artist’s Statement: To represent a Snowy owl, I chose a thread-painting method. Because of the fabric shrinking, I could make the small, 3D effect on the centre medallion. The border is a reverse-facing binding and is beaded. The name, "Ookpik", is Snowy owl in the Inuktitut language.
