"Pyrex bowls on parade"
I created this collage for Illustration Friday this morning. It started with the pyrex bowls and slowly became a homage to my grandmother, Hilda Gable. The quilted piece in the background was made by her. While creating this piece, i began thinking about her life as a homemaker - tending to the duties of the house, cooking and cleaning but also making her home a lovely place with a garden and handmade quilts and other crafty things she would create - like papercut lampshades and collaged jewery boxes.
So as I was working, I incorporated the quilted panel she made then filled the bowls with gladiolas which she may have grown in her flower garden. I am sure she owned a set of pyrex bowls - everyone did in the 50's and 60's didn't they?
anyway - i hope you enjoy this collage. i will offer prints for sale in my etsy shop.
