She is a representational piece, a lady sitting quietly, looking down at her handy quilted work. She was sitting quietly in this green soapstone. This sculpture created as a tribute to a wonderful women who has stitched her love into many quilts for her family and friends.
Trapunta is carved from a green soapstone. Metaphysically,the color ‘green’ is the color for the ‘heart’ , the heart is the center of love. Initially she was named the “Quilter” but I thought we needed a name befitting fine art, so I decided to translate our word to Italian. “Trapunta” was perfect. Mrs. Wilson, the owner of this graceful lady, is quite happy!!!
