Infrastructure: making it as I find it

This textile began with the opening of my grandmother's 1950s blue wool coat. What I found within--the frayed woven webbing, rose colored bias tape, two-toned satin lining, thick wool seams-- had such strong sculptural possibilities that I left them intact as the jumping-off point for the resulting textile.
