Life is to be lived in the here and now. Immersion in the present leads to joy and ecstasy. "Immersion" is made to engage the viewer in this moment. The intense color, the layers of silk, and the connection of the human form are there to enable the viewer to step outside of the mind and into the moment. This quilt is hand dyed and hand sewn using silk gauze, silk charmeuse, silk habotai, flat crepe silk, silk thread, Nepal twisted silk yarn, wool, cotton batting, and raw silk. It is both machine and hand stitched. The actual size of the piece is 20"x29"x2"
