Colleen Clifford and Oceana Madrone
Colleen Clifford: "Glass is a fragile yet sensuous material, and I enjoy making art that can play off these elements. Designing a piece takes the creativity, concentration, and dedication that any art medium demands, and I am both challenged and inspired during this process. When the piece moves to the construction phase, I love to feel the creative force of art bonding with the traditional, mechanical craft of stained glass production. I strive to balance a piece with pleasing composition, color, and texture."
Oceana Madrone: "Fabric and beads are a passion of mine. They offer so many choices in color, patterns, textures, and sparkle. The possibilities are endless. Quilts, dolls, and ceremonial jewelry are bouncing around in my head, clamoring to be made. With time and patience they are created reflecting my desire to create order out of chaos, and bringing beauty into people's hearts."
