Fields of Salt map art quilt by LInda Gass. Although the landscape in this artwork may look like farm fields, it is actually salt ponds used for industrial salt production. These ponds used to be essential wetlands of San Francisco Bay.
Embroidered map - The Oxton Art Fair 2012 - The annual Oxton Art Fair is a wonderful showcase of art, craft and design from local artists within four of galleries of the Williamson Art Gallery in Birkenhead.
This quilt has texture and depth created by playing with the fabrics and stitch used. Some areas have been raised by inserting padding and stitching over the top, opaque fabrics have been layered to create the illusion of depth.
