Janet Brandt's Casket at Winterthur

Janet Brandt, Linda Eaton and Myself with Janet's Casket in the exhibit.  And yes, that is her second one on the table next to it for a short discussion being held during the opening
If you haven't been to Winterthur in the last few weeks after they started exhibiting Janet Brandt's embroidered casket - you need to go!  The entire exhibit is wonderful but the star is Janet's epic casket with all the pieces inside.

They have displayed it in such a lovely way, slightly open to see the embroidery inside as well and a few of the items scattered in the case.  The walls are painted red to highlight the casket.  Pictures of this piece do not justify it in any way.

It will be on exhibit until January 6th as part of Embroidery: The Threads of History.

  1. I am fortunate to have a friend who was there (I believe at the same time as you) who shared her exhibit catalog and photos with me. Such beautiful work!
