How Did the Article in American Craft Come to Be?

When I see something amazing happen for a fellow artist or maker, I wonder how it happened or what they did to make that happen.  Do you wonder the same thing?

Recently, my work was featured in American Craft Magazine -- two pages in the Craft in Action section about Pick Up Your Pencils, Begin. While there was an increment of good fortune, it was actually years of making, along with taking every day actions that readers of ASK Harriete could implement for greater visibility for their work.

In this case, a quote of Louis Pasteur comes to mind, "Chance favors only the prepared mind."

While there are no guarantees for anything in life, the article in American Craft came about in part because of the ongoing four years of communicating each milestone of the project.  I took the time to give the project visibility on my web site.

Read the entire explanation on ASK Harriete.  I did not post it here because some of the information is not compatible with Crafthaus (NING).

I posted a few images of the fabrication below. View the four year summary of this project on my web site.
