Hi Sarah, thankyou for the kind comments, I havn't been on Crafthouse for a litle while, it is very encouraging, and motivating! Your works are very interesting, I love the fluidity. I would love to come to the opening of your show at Guyomarc'h- I live about 15 mins walk away! I have a very busy April planned, what are the dates? Kate.
I would love, love, love that. We will have to plan it for September since I'll be gone all summer teaching at an arts camp where my kids go. In the meantime, I'll post some pictures on my blog of the set up I'm using to work in my room, since the evenings are a bit too cool in my indoor/outdoor studio at camp. It's all so compact, it'll be a fun challenge.
What are the adornments of dictators, despots, and the plain delusional? What do they need in order to let their real personalities shine through? What tools do tyrants have to show that they are in charge? See for yourself!

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

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
