Materials: Maine beach stones, linen dyed with madder. Crocheted.

Image Statement: In the summer of 2021 I began to crochet around Maine beach stones, binding them in a soft covering, held securely as a mother might swaddle her baby. There was something about the solid weight of these tightly wrapped stones that slowly began to ground me, giving me the perception of safety and security.
