Criminal Quilts Miniature 10. Manipulated hands on felt

Image of Criminal Quilts Miniature 10. Manipulated hands on felt

Criminal Quilts miniature pieces are made in response to my research into prison mugshots of women from the late 19th and early 20th century. I made quilts about these women as a way of giving comfort and gentleness back into their lives of poverty and prison. This miniature quilt focusses on the hands in the original prison images and is made from manipulated, naturally dyed silk and wool felt.
The tiny quilt is 29x24cm and mounted on grey board approx 35cm square. This is sold unframed but there is a frame available for it on request - professionally hand made light wood box frame (add £65 plus additional postage). Signed on the board.
