|Dream Catcher by Donna Kallner|
|On the design wall|
I pictured the Dream Catcher casting a net across the deck of a vessel that struggles like a fish.
The vessel in this piece was made from recycled quilt blocks given to me by my sister-in-law's best friend, from her aunt's estate. I overdyed them in the indigo vat.
The frame is made from flannel blocks from the same source, also overdyed, then turned to use the back side so the prints were more subtle.
Bill suggested the anchor when I was talking about feeling "unmoored." When my lines get frayed and snap, setting me adrift, he's the Dream Catcher who keeps me from losing it.
Next time, I'll take you inside another of the pieces from the show. In the meantime, sweet dreams.
