Edition 14 I affectionately refer to this series as the Crow's Shadow Blanket Suite. These prints relate to a project that explores the history of common wool blankets. The colors for the prints are based on wool blankets I've been collecting from thrift stores, family friends and acquaintances. In Native communities blankets are given away to honor people for being witnesses to important life events-births and coming of age, graduations and marriages, namings and honorings. For this reason, it is as much of a privilege to give a blanket away as it is to receive one. I am struck by how blankets function as markers for memories and stories. Blankets hang around in our lives and families-they gain meaning through use. Marie Watt
