Coagulation

This felted piece represents the process of coagulation and depicts the proteins in blood vessels binding to change blood from a liquid to a semi-solid or solid state.

Coagulation

Coagulation,
a wondrous miracle,
The body’s healing.

Gather wool roving,
Blood’s glorious reds, pinks, whites.
Drink in the color.

Lost in needling
Imagining the structure
White web of protein.

Red spectrum plasma
Nestled among the protein,
Protected, clotting.
