We had the pleasure of sharing our story in this wonderful publication, as part of a community of many more talented and passionate artists.
Craftspeople in Their Own Words brings together 80+ stories written by 75 craftspeople describing their lives in the studio, on the road, or at various American craft shows from the 1960s to the present. Covering a wide range of topics, from selling leather work at the Woodstock music festival in 1969; to surviving a microburst at an outdoor show in Denver; conversing with a homeless person in Washington, DC; enduring the theft of months of work;remembering a cherished colleague; or giving birth to a child just after set up, the book offers an intimate look at the experiences and philosophies of highly creative professional artists in clay, fiber, glass, jewelry, metal, mosaics, and other media, whose studios are located in diverse urban and rural settings. Most of the story contributors are American.
