Title: Noren

Year Completed: 2002

Size: H45” × W19.5” / H114 cm × W49.5 cm

Material: old cotton, new cotton

Statement: At my mother's request I made a noren (a kind of thin curtain often hung between rooms in Japanese homes to afford at least some privacy) to hang between the entrance room and the kitchen. Therefore there is no batting between the two sides even though this is a reversible quilt. I purposely kept the design rather simple, in order to harmonize with the furniture in those rooms. However after completing the quilt I decided not to use it as a noren after all.
