Quilts 15 was commissioned for the new Bistroteque Restaurant, housed within CulturePlex in Manchester.
One side, ‘the blue collar’ side of the quilt, is made entirely of old blue overalls and boiler suits, along with a collection of white aprons. The abstracted shapes are formed by the pattern shapes within these garments.
The other side reflects the interior of the old, now demolished, Manchester Magistrates Courts designed by Brian Henderson for YRM. The white is made up of the architect’s shirts.
