Peace Maker National Army Museum, London

Date: 2014

Measurements: 2.4 x 1.8 m

Description: This textile work is a flag for peace, justice, equality and humanity. It evolved out of the project 'Piece Makers' where I worked with soldiers and veteran soldiers over a period of months.

Material: Reused army blankets, embroidery thread, silk, wood & ribbon.

Provenance: London, UK

Notes: 'Peace Makers' was the final commissioned piece that came out of a year long process of researching the National Army Museums collection and working with soldiers and veteran soldiers who were in rehabilitation after serving in Afghanistan and other conflict zones. The central swatch was made by Michael Crossan and the rest of the quilt was crafted by me using the soldiers ideas and voices. This work and photographs documenting the project toured to six regimental Museums in the UK (2014-16) before being accessioned into the museums permanent collection in London.
