Postal Pillows are a new collection that helps me branch across my maker self to my artistic painter self. I've been quite divided between the two and this COVID, 2020 year has gotten me to embrace my artistic voice and put it more in my functional and fine art pieces.
This series is in collaboration with another Baltimore based artist, Matt Muirhead, who has been silkscreening mailboxes on fabric for a mailing project. Each of these pillows has his silkscreened mailbox as a central focus for each. I've added the bird-women, birds, and felt appliques, in which I have created using freehand machine stitching.
The felt "drawings" are part of my artistic vocabulary that helps communicate what I am feeling while also presenting the viewer to use their own interpretation. I am trying to speak up for nature, our birds, our climate, and our valuable postal system!!
These can be used to scream or cry into! I think we all need these days.
A percentage of the proceeds are going towards supporting our postal system, which is how it will get delivered to you, plus the ACLU will help to protect our workers and social value systems as well as our humanity. I also donate to the Audobon society as well as help out volunteer with Lights Out Baltimore.
Each pillow is framed with complementary piping, and a hidden zipper to remove the high-quality pillow form.
Dry Clean Only
“If a Woodcock Could, a Woodcock Would” postal pillow features all linework by freehand machine stitching except the mailbox, that is silkscreen. Measuring 16” x 16”, the front has national park symbols in the surrounding fabric, and airmail symbols in the center panel. The back panel is a leaf pattern in grays. Iris and manhole cover are stitched on felt.
