Pennies, satin, black velvet, nylon mesh, glass beads, toy watches, copper wire, clear vinyl tubing
69 x 58 inches

The forty-two mesh-fronted bags holding coins and toy watches that are attached to the front of this piece create an overall image of a clock face with the word REVELATIONS below the dial. The bags are arranged in a seven-over-six set that references traditional block quilt designs.

"Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you."
-- Carl Sandburg
