Nightmare Event!

One of my students asked me to set a very large - 6ct - ruby for her as she was nervous about doing it. She had made the setting and it fitted very nicely, so I had no fear about doing it. Just as I was gently levelling the stone in the setting...…

Stonesetting day

As I am having to wait for the central element of "Cold Genius" to be finished and delivered, I've been in the odd position of making the settings for the piece before it is even constructed! I know what stones I want to use and where I want to use them, but can do nothing until the exact sizes of the "Cold Genius" himself are known.


Here are some of the stones and their settings:…

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
