Volitant is quilted from recycled clothes and my grandmother’s stash of old upholstery material. Some fabric is coffee, tea, or walnut stained. The whole piece is oiled to enhance the values. The quilt is shaped to create the idea that it could just “take off” from the wall. Volitant means to have the power or the capability of flight.
