I read this article at the Selvedge.com website this morning. I am struck by the title first and then the philosophy behind the work of Abigial Booth, an English artist. These quotes below capture it, especially the last one.
This focus on experimentation enables her process to be unhurried,
starting each piece with a simple observation of a found object or
architectural detail. From there she sketches, designs, naturally dyes
and hand-stitches almost all of her quilts.
As Abigail sees it, all of
the materials command a certain level of respect as they are to all
intents and purposes still alive – vats of dye for instance, will
forever continue to change as they age.
By tuning into the tiny details of the environment,
Abigail’s quilts simmer down their surroundings, and draw out the
natural power of pause.
