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: http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/crafthausexhibition/forum/topics/call-for-entries-piece?xg_source=msg_mes_network

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

hi francesca!

yes, i enjoyed meeting you, as well.  i'm such a great fan of your work.

my friend, brighid, came to your booth (she's the one who was living in milan and is now headed for sao paulo) and bought a pair of your cufflinks (little blue ones with spiderman on them...such fun!)  she told me you have your dad looking for interesting paper for you.

i hope we do another show together soon!

Midsummer

As usual, I've relocated to the South Coast for the summer and have been doing very little to do with work. Since my last post, I've had my friend and fellow-jeweller, Madelyn Smoak with us here and that has lead to adventures. We started off in London at Tate Britain to see the…See More

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

Prima Donna Assoluta

I've been so busy with work I've missed writing the blog for a couple of weeks. I've got some ideas to share, I just need time to assemble the thoughts. 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
