The experience of creating fine craft is an important element to understanding it. Our constant experimentation, planning and preparations allow us to rework ideas and techniques– and “the hand of the maker” becomes evident in each step along the way. It’s during this making process that we learn about ourselves, and how to bring out the best in our chosen media. Our time, effort and passion leave a personal mark that is an integral part of our work. The “making” component of fine craft is often undervalued and (ironically) highly prized. Our theme explores how the uniqueness of each artist is expressed through their mark, their hand, their method and medium.

Closing reception: Thursday, September 10 from 6 - 8 p.m.
