Koozie Quilts

Last spring, quarantine gave me time to explore a material I have been interested in for a while, beer koozies. Their ubiquity, excess, and seemingly disposable nature begged me to create something from it. I am creating a new textile out of this freebie item, and at times interpreting traditional quilt patterns in this material. I create from a place of abundance and knowledge that we already have all that we need. I want to bring attention to the items that we discard and do not value, and how we can rethink their usefulness in the face of an uncertain climate reality caused by our own making.
