Image Statement: During the height of the pandemic in 2020, the minister of my church gave us the opportunity to create personal communion altars for our virtual services. It was a special time for me to bring my creativity and spirituality together with my textile art and handmade ceramics in these indoor and outdoor altars. This was my very first altar including one panel of my large textile triptych “Release” as well as some shibori indigo dyed ramie.
