Artists and Makers – Glass
When I moved to Philadelphia in 1983 right after college, I didn’t know its significance to Craft History. Nor was I in touch with the roots that grew into my passion for craft, specifically stained glass. The community here has been like finding a family I didn’t know existed–and such a family! Supportive, inspiring and stimulating. I consider Philadelphia integral to my craft practice, although that might not be visible in the work, it is a deep undercurrent.
