I love to do gallery shows, but Crafthaus exhibitions offers good visibility & is permanently available on the Internet. Great way to get work out & seen!

If your computer is behaving kooky & you can't resize images, not a problem Marie will do that.

I will be at Peters Valley Craft Center in NJ on Thursday to prep for Lie-Nielson Tool Event & then demonstrating hand tools on Friday & Saturday, Apr 25 & 26.

Marie will be home to accept submissions.

have a great week

Retracing my steps: Explorations in Fiber Sculpture at Arrowmont

Arrowmont: after 25 years, I am returning to the place where it all started for me as a fiber artist.  That embarrassing picture is me, Amber O’Harrow (then Amber Wood), with my first weaving, turned into a bag.  Let’s see where my journey has led me since then, as I follow my guide, Pat Hickman on an exploration of fiber sculpture at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. See More

In the meanwhile, let me share my latest flute images. These portraits are of famous opera divas past and present (taken from images while in costumed role). Each disc (flute cup) is a little over 1/2 inch in diameter and they are all chased and raised out of the flat surface of the cup - nothing is soldered on.I hope you like them.…See More
