Maegen Black, Curator:
In the field of craft, where technical skill, traditional practices, and choice of material are commonly listed as the defining characteristics of the art form, the unsung hero is often the story. Each descriptor plays a critical role in the creation and the discussion, but the fact of the matter is that craft simply wouldn’t be craft without all these factors rolled into one. They speak to each other, they reference each other, and they are intrinsically tied together once each piece is complete.
