LaVonne Dunetts has been creating with fiber in many forms for much of her life. Most of her quilting works are original designs using fabrics she has hand-dyed, overdyed or painted. Dunetts has won numerous awards for her art, quilting and sewing – both locally and statewide. Her background in engineering and construction help her visualize how materials can be arranged in complex variations. Her goal is to create harmony and beauty from disorder and chaos. Below are her thoughts on the creation of “Earth, Air, Fire, Water.”

“Earth, air, fire and water: identified by the ancient Greeks as the elements that make up the world. We now know them as solids, liquids, gases and energy: separate but interconnected to form our universe. I have depicted each separate element with my work but have used the copper discs to show interconnectivity. Cupric ores are dug from the earth, smelted and annealed with fire, quenched in water and oxidized in air. I have used my hand-dyed and commercial fabrics, beads and yarn.”
