#15 "Home For Christmas"

#15 Kay Bautz of Afton, NY

“Home for Christmas”

Embellishments & Techniques: Silk material, cotton material, silk flowers, glue gun, hand sewing, ribbon, eyelet, polyfil and ‘love’.

Artist’s Statement: My friend, Mary Ann, was diagnosed with breast cancer, admitted to a hospital in early December. She was operated on and had some complications so her stay was longer than had been anticipated. Her desire was to be home with her family by Christmas – in her home and enjoy church with her family. It came to pass and she was very thankful. Thus, this is why I decorated the bra as a Christmas symbol. She loved silk next to her scar that is why the silk is on the back of the cups. May God bless all cancer persons!
