The Quilt is 100% cotton with pieced quilt panels. All borders are stitched. Top stitching around the basic form. This is an authentic patch quilt with casing at the top for a pole for hanging.

More background on the Quilt:
The cover is 100% cotton with a special finish for a soft surface feel, and has polyester fiber fill. Many commercial quilts sold today are printed by computers, but ours was block-printed in Japan to achieve the rich color saturation that Thomas Blackshear's art requires. The fabric was then shipped to Thailand for assembly by individuals in small villages who are stitching each quilt together and top-stitching them on sewing machines. The attention to detail throughout the design preparation, printing, and assembly of this quilt was necessary to achieve the high quality expected of every Thomas Blackshear product we create. .

Artist Bio

"I always knew I wanted to create Ebony Visions'. As an artist who happens to be black, I had distinct ideas about what I would like to see in the line." The elegant compeling figurines he created for the collection are a blen of both Art Nouveau and African culture, which Thomas calls "Afro-Nouveau." - Thomas Blackshear .Thomas Blackshear introduced Ebony Visions in April 1995 with the release of the first six Ebony Visions designs, The Storyteller, The Protector, The Nurturer, Siblings, Madonna and Tender Touch. Since then, Thomas Blackshear has created many new designs to add to the Ebony Visions collection. Thomas Blackshear's Ebony Visions collection is a master work of romantic symbolism. As with his paintings, these sculptures demonstrate Thomas Blackshear's incredible sense of design, unique eclectic style, and extraordinary mastery of color. Elegant drapery and delicate detail tantalize the eye while revealing each sculpted form. Thomas Blackshear's Ebony Visions depicts a full range of emotions that are both powerful and at the same time subtle. He deliberately portrays his Ebony Visions figures in a timeless setting in order to transcend a specific time, place, or culture. This unique collection of limited edition figurines emphasizes the beauty of the human form and symbolizes universal aspirations and ideals of humankind depicted through images that reflect the unique characteristics of the African American culture. For centuries classical beauty has been portrayed predominantly by white artisans who represent white subjects in their art. In this romantic and subtle tour de force, Thomas Blackshear creates a new vision of beauty and human emotion, an Ebony Vision.
