Penland School of Crafts

Pictured is a pitcher, part of a recently completed commission for the Penland School of Crafts in Penland, NC. The commission involved reimagining a selection of Appalachian hand crafts that were made at Penland and used to promote the school at the 1933 World’s Fair in Chicago. The additional objects ranged from a weaving to a candle lit sconce, all fashioned in stainless steel.

New Penland Book

Penland School of Crafts in Penland, North Carolina just published a book highlighting it’s resident artist and core fellowship program. Titled Inspired, the book pays homage to the success of the two programs, helping transform eager young artists into professionals and making western North Carolina an epicenter for handmade. I was a resident artist in 2002, it’s an honor to be featured.
