Ricki Dwyer: Plastic Quilt

With my CNC milling project, I vacuum formed my relief with painters tarp. This material is more or less industrial strength trash bags, very pliable before and after the vacuum forming process. I had to cut my relief down into quarters, and ended up only using one of the quarters I had milled, due to aesthetic choices. I vacuum formed thirty squares and ironed the white binding on to adhere the plastics together. This quilt is the standard size of a twin bed.
