“Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I’d be writing a book.

What prompted this project was May 2012, the date celebrating 25 years since my introduction to making paper.

The writing of this book was an amazing, fabulous, exhausting, invigorating experience!”

25 years with style…is 94 pages of beautifully presented images of various art styles over the years and a narrative of the events that surrounded the changes.

The book is exquisite and will be stunning on any table!

Craftspeople In Their Own Words brings together 85 stories written by 75 craftspeople describing their lives in the studio, on the road, or at various American craft shows from the 1960s to the present.

Covering a wide range of topics, from selling leather work at the Woodstock music festival in 1969; to surviving a microburst at an outdoor show in Denver; conversing with a homeless person in Washington, DC; enduring the theft of months of work; or remembering a cherished colleague, the book offers an intimate look at the experiences and philosophies of highly creative professional artists in clay, fiber, glass, jewelry, metal, mosaics, and more, whose studios are located in diverse settings.

Lavishly illustrated with approximately 350 color and black-and-white photos of craftspeople and their work, the 228 page volume is edited by fellow craftspeople.
