Here’s what my PBS affiliate description reads: “This episode of “Craft in America” looks at the ways many craft artists go beyond skill to personal and political expression. They use craft to tell a story, prove a point or bring attention to contemporary issues. Often their work is passionate and provocative. Artists featured include Wisconsin glass artist Beth Lipman; New Mexico santero Charles Carrillo; Baltimore quilter, sculptor and performance artist Joyce J. Scott; and New Orleans metal and jewelry artist Thomas Mann.”
Joyce definitely uses her work to tell a story and bring attention to contemporary issues. I’m especially looking forward to her segment. I took a week-long class with her, and it was an honor to be her student.
