"HEIRLOOMS: Navigating the Personal in Contemporary Jewelry" link to article including several Crafthaus artists

Posted on February 13, 2009 at 8:55am 3 Comments

Howdy, all:

Since this is a site for sharing and this article I worked on mentions several of the great artists that are featured on Crafthaus, I thought I would forward a link. I hope that you like it!

Wonderful to hear from such a vibrant presence in the craft community! I can't wait to have a closer look at your previous exhibitions. They sound amazing. My clumsy fingers muddled the original friend request, so I sent it back to you. I hope you accept.

They were given a timeline of 6 weeks to complete and return the finished piece. Photos were taken of everybody’s pieces and a luncheon was held for the members to vote on…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
