My outdoor public art installation in Steckborn, Switzerland, that was installed on April 14, 2021, with Haus zur Glocke Art Center in the town of Steckborn on the shores of Lake Constance, is beginning to bloom! The handmade paper quilt had seeds for wildflowers in the pulp in the same colors and patterns. Tiny white flowers (maybe Baby’s Breath) are showing up now, and there is a lot of lush green foliage for other wildflowers. The different colors of the other wildflowers in this “living quilt” should start to bloom soon. I am happy to post these photos sent by Haus zur Glocke Director and Curator Judit Villliger on June 7, 2021.
I plan to make a slide show that will show the process of the “living quilt” in more detail after all the flowers bloom, maybe by mid summer. I will post the complete slide show on YouTube with a link from this Blog. Also, I will continue posting photos sent by Judit in coming weeks. A very big thank you to Judit and the staff at Haus zur Glocke for taking such good care of the Living Quilt and sending all of this great documentation.
Hope everyone is having a good summer. Now it is very hot and dry here in Northern California, and it looks like my “living quilt” installations in California are maybe finished for this year. They should come back again with blooms and new growth next Spring after our Winter rains.
