In an effort to reduce her footprint, Deborah Kruger uses scraps from her larger pieces for an ongoing series of smaller pieces called Remnants. Remnants 17 is a quilt like piece whose components are made from fiber, encaustic, oilstick and paint. The scraps are tied together with waxed linen thread and the piece hangs from a wrapped stick.
Exhibited at the Cultural Center in Oaxaca, Mexico as part of the World Textile Association exhibition with the theme of Recyclability.
An image of the piece appears in the exhibition catalogue (see bibliography) and it is included in the collection of the World Textile Association.
