Layered-look quilt

This Mini Clay Quilt class with Laurie Mika already happened during the April Artfest. Even so, it’s inspiring and worth a Monday look.

Seems Laurie has taken her remarkable array of surface techniques and added a new emphasis on layering. You’ll remember Laurie’s earlier mosaics and her collaborative quilt entry in last year’s Synergy II Exhibit. Her polymer mosaic book is a “must have” and now there’s a Kindle edition.

Laurie’s off for the summer (in Egypt and Jordan) and will be gearing up for fall teaching in September.

I ran into the link on Julie Fei-Fan’s Pinterest board.

        Lovely in its creative and rich intricacies. A big fan. Her work always seems to remind me of medieval castles and monks.

            Laurie’s work is wonderful, I am fascinated by regarding her mosaics/mosaicons… to find all the well placed details. I had the chance to meet Laurie in personal and found out that she is a wonderful woman, warmhearted and always laughing, also an excellent teacher, hope I’ll have the chance to meet her again

              Always an adventure to explore Lauries art. Each square has a story and is so beautiful as a whole. Thank you for sharing.
