From 1981 until 2005, I traveled extensively in mainland and island SE Asia, spending many months a year in Indonesia. Throughout Indonesia, Asia, as well as Turkey and Eastern Europe, I searched out makers of all kinds, expanding my knowledge of cultures as they expressed it through materials and techniques. I cannot overestimate the valuable experience of learning from these makers, and those lessons have immeasurably enriched my own making and meaning.
