Saw your collaborative piece that you made with Loring last night at the cooperative tableware show.  Very cool work!  I love it when two artists that I dig get together like that!  Congrats

Hi Francesca,

I'm curating an online exhibition called "Piece Progressions" and would love for you to be a part of it. I think your varied materials and lovely final pieces would add something really unique. You can see details of the exhibition here:

If you have any questions feel free to contact me; it would be great to have you as part of the exhibition!

Get the book on Amazon!

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.
