Sanctuary Nest

Beverly Gordon

This giant nest uses Willow; apple, grape vines, Virginia Creeper and sheep’s wool, and rests precariously on two logs. It reminds one of the many meanings of sanctuary and home.

Beverly Gordon recently retired from 30 years as a professor in Design Studies at UW-Madison, where she taught classes relating to design and our cultural environment. She is a writer (most recent book: Textiles: The Whole Story: Uses, Meanings, Significance), and a visual artist whose work typically involves re-contextualization—repositioning and reusing images in collage.
