Heather Daveno of August Phoenix Hats works out of her studio in Seattle, Washington, USA. She describes her method:

“I craft my hats from textiles and found objects that I glean from thrift stores, rummage sales, and other people’s cast-offs, using tools handed down to me from my grandmothers. Many of my hat patterns, embroidery stitches and techniques date back several centuries. Working with “old timey” tools, techniques and textiles gives me a sense of reclaiming history, while giving a contemporary use to previously discarded objects.”

  • Elizabeth Runyon: Vessels – To Have and To Hold
    Elizabeth Runyon will have a solo exhibit, “Vessels: To Have and To Hold” at the Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati August 12-September 9, 2016. Elizabeth is one of only nine solo exhibition proposals selected from 151 entries for Manifest’s 12th season. “Elizabeth Runyon’s Vessels reminds us of the gray line between fine arts and fine crafts, masterfully blurring any preconceived notions of hierarchy between the two. Her reed and seagrass constructions offer both a dedicated yet playful realization of traditional materials and techniques, and a view of the evolution of functional objects into formal and expressive conveyors of experience in the gallery or museum context. With her sculptures, Runyon reminds us that objects may well be far more than at first assumed—revealing themselves as animated bearers of memories, hopes, and life’s shared energy.” – Manifest Gallery Elizabeth’s large sculptural baskets are based on traditional Appalachian ribbed egg basket techniques. She works in reed and seagrass, natural basketry materials.   Shown above: “Dreaming ... read more

  • Danielle Bodine and Dorothy McGuinness in “Paper Transformed II” Exhibit
    “Paper Transformed II” is the second exhibition of the work of eight Western Washington artists who transform machine and handmade paper into artist books, sculpture, jewelry, baskets and other visual objects. NBO members Danielle Bodine and Dorothy McGuinness are exhibiting, along with Dona Anderson, Mary Ashton, Zia Gipson, Lois James, Jean-Marie Tarascio, and Sande Wascher-James. All use paper for its inherent infinitely malleable character, not just as a substrate for traditional artists’ media. The exhibition runs from August 5, through August 25, 2016 at the Koch Gallery, Vashon Center for the Arts on Vashon Island, Washington.
