When Jason “Hawke” Hamilton built his bedroom loft in his space at The Brewery Artist’s Colony, he wanted a special headboard. He decided on no physical headboard at all, but instead to have a painted headboard on the wall. The result was a combination of angel wings and other elements from sacred geometry.

Then Hamilton collaborated with quilter and educator Teresa Coates on their Ascension Quilt, based on the headboard. The materials included a pair of Hawke’s old jeans that Coates had patched one too many times for him. Today at The Brewery you can see both pieces. Coates will soon take the quilt on the road and in the future, you’ll only be able to see one or the other at any given location.
