Barbara MacCalla
By Hand for Warmth and Joy

Barbara MacCalla, Woven Blankets

Crows are observed to keep treasure nests full of stolen, often shiny, objects that have captured their attention. That's a good description of my mind, a crow's nest full of things that have caught my eye. Inspiration comes from the world around me, from books art, ideas, old houses, music, conversations overheard, dreams--well, just about anywhere and everywhere.

Like a crow, I turn my treasures over, rearrange them, see what patterns they form. As a human, I have the advantage of hands to turn these mental assemblages into objects I can share with others.
