Oil Rig

Jo Budd

Made in Bungay, Suffolk, England, United Kingdom
Dated 1996-1998

In 2009-2010, Oil Rig appeared in the International Quilt Museum exhibition Perspectives: Art, Craft, Design & the Studio Quilt. It is one of six pieces in her Lowestoft series, which was inspired by industrial buildings and seascapes.

Michael James described her quilts as both ambitious and larger-than-life but with a keen understanding of the “subtle modulations in small areas on the textile’s surfaces as well as the broader abstract territory of the composition."
