Check out ‘Opulent Ornaments’ at University Hospital

December 17, 2020  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Kaleidoscope: the very word promises surprise and magic, change and chance. Exploding with visual excitement, a kaleidoscopic design organizes an abundance of light, color, form and motion into a complex and coherent image.

Paula Nadelstern has achieved international recognition for her innovative and complex patchwork quilts inspired by the bilateral symmetry of kaleidoscopic images. These elaborate ornaments, made together with Karen Selva, are a natural extension of Nadelstern’s fabric design and quilt focus, applying her personal technical and design strategies to the familiar gentleness of hand beading. Her work is featured on the cover of the 2nd edition of the Gifts of Art Kaleidoscope Coloring Bookfor Michigan Medicine patients and families.

It can also be found at Michigan Medicine. Check it out for yourself:
