Hi Barbara,

No, I have never been invited to teach at Haystack. Instead, I've had the sole pleasure of working on my work.. and eating bacon! Teaching there is a 24/7 job.

They only have the BEST teachers, so you can consider yourself so!

Gorgeous collaborative necklace, by the way. Bet it brought in the big bucks.

I first attended Haystack in 1992, and feel fortunate to have been invited back every year since. While there, I created some of my most important works, in books, mixed media and clay. The experiences changed my life, and the people I met during those summers are precious.

Last year was probably my last, as I moved to Southern Californa to be closer to my family. As I no longer fly, other than in my dreams and imagination, trips across country to Maine will be difficult and costly. But Haystack (and its memories of limitless bacon and whipped cream) will always remain my Paradise.

What happens when professional craft artists are allowed to let loose when they get to explore their mischievous and irreverent sides? Find out in this groundbreaking book, which, for the very first time, reveals an entirely different side of serious craft. Hundreds of images and essays from all over the world allow you to gain insight into the creative minds of contemporary artists like never before.

A variety of traditional craft media are shown, such as furniture, ceramics, glass, fiber, jewelry, and metal, as well as a number of unique, nontraditional techniques. Even a bus shelter in London gets a creative make-over that is sure to make you smile!

The topics range from the playful to the serious, but the message is always most enjoyable. Humor in Craft is a treasure trove for craft aficionados and humor enthusiasts alike.

More information about the book, exhibitions, press and other hurrahs here.
