interior and garden decor
My Mandalas are made in vintage and modern doily designs, from unexpected materials like marine grade twine and heavy macramé cord. The use of such bulky fibers transforms the traditionally dainty doily into something much more powerful. It’s time to give traditional “women’s work” the respect it deserves.
These are quite large, ranging from around 24 inches, up to 5 feet or more. Some are intended for indoor installation only, while the others made with marine cord can resist weather and mildew.

Community Coral Reef Project
My work on the Community Coral Reef Project has inspired a little travel project of my own. These Baby Corals will be made along the way, and left for anyone to find. The Reef Project is partnered with the Coral Reef Alliance, to raise awareness of our global need to protect our reefs from human destruction. These little corals I’m making will come with a tag listing hashtags and a link to the project. If you find one, please post and tag a photo. Watch for these in Seaside, Seattle, Boston/Marblehead, and then Switzerland and Italy, from now until mid-October.
