This work was created last summer at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts where I attended a workshop on the traditional Korean paper felting technique called Joomchi with the amazing Jiyoung Chung (check out photos from the workshop in the “archives” section). This work was in a juried show called Spotlight 6 at the Arsenal Center for the Arts in Watertown, MA a few months back. All of the red circles you see are unfelted Hanji that are hand sewn onto the Joomchi. I hope to create more work with Hanji (Korean Paper) very soon!!
My piece “Dot Constellation” was recently featured in the Mass Art Auction where it was selected for a Makers Mark Award. That’s pretty cool (thanks to everyone that voted for my piece)!!
I have new work in this group show at the Distillery Gallery in South Boston, curated by Courtney Moy. I’m really excited about my new paintings!! You can check out the progression of install and my work here. (Follow me to keep in touch!)
Here is the press release from the gallery:
The Distillery Gallery Presents:
“To Each His Home”
April 27 – May 25, 2013
Opening Reception: Saturday, April 27, 7-9pm
The Distillery Gallery is pleased to announce a group exhibit curated by exhibiting artist, Courtney Moy.
“To Each His Home” explores the spaces and ideas of what we call home. The artists in the show share a common affinity for narrative, evoking themes of nostalgia, youth, and familiarity that define who they are individually but collectively explore something deeper and distinctly universal.
Exhibiting artists: Jes Hughes, Veronica Wells, Caitie Moore, Ian Deleon & Kara Stokowski, Molly Landman, Roland Jackson, Katharena Rentumis, Fionn McCabe, and Courtney Moy
Check out my piece in the Auction this year!! It’s a flat glass and mixed media installation piece that has multiple parts and can morph to fit its surroundings.
Here are my new pieces from January, I’m super excited for this new installation idea.
In the first photograph, you can see the solid spheres after I torch work them full of dots and let them chill out (actually keep them warm) in the garage while I prepare their large spherical home.
The second photo shows a progression of the pieces throughout a week in the hot shop. Making these pieces was so much fun!! I learned a lot from each one.
Oh, and on the last day, I decided to blow a few functional pieces which was also super fun and new.
I’ll have better photographs and more pieces soon after I cold work and continue this process of accumulation.
Finally enameled and fired these glass pieces for new Kumi Circle Jewelry. I’m hoping to finish and get some new pieces listed soon!
Lots of new things being made for Kumi Circle, you can check it out here:
New things happening! Check back as I add more hand made glass and paper pieces by Kumi Circle

I’m excited to have some of my new works on paper in a Show at the Arsenal Center for the Arts in Watertown. I’m especially happy to have finished some of the Joomchi (Korean paper felting technique) work that I started in my class with Jiyoung Chung at Haystack this past Summer. Check it out if you’re in the area!
