Makers' Market next weekend

Here are examples of my new series of tactile vessels that will debut at the Makers' Market next weekend in Whittier neighborhood. They will be shown alongside the works of several other artists- metalworkers, jewelry artists, glassworkers, and more- in George Wurtzel's Furniture Design Studio June 8th and 9th at 2613 Stevens Ave. S. Minneapolis. George is a blind furniture maker who creates stunning work and has invited other artists to display in his space. This show is meant to be "touch friendly" to cater to art enthusiasts with low/no vision. I'm excited to be a part of it! Special thanks to my mom, Sandie Pierce, for creating the vessels that I then needle felting to add textured design elements.
