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.
