"Tom and Kathy Wegman are willing to bead almost anything with thousands of colorful seed beads and other jewels. They transform mundane objects into something full of sparkle, color, and humor. Lighthearted words and comical statements enhance many of the pieces. Using 450 colors of seed beads, the Wegman’s create elaborate patterns on the surface of telephones, irons, toasters, even a vacuum cleaner. The question is always “what is next?”" - Thirteen Moons Gallery

"In my work, I use the human figure along with religious and animal imagery to explore the depths of human consciousness and its unconscious roots. These pieces transform from human to animal and from conscious to unconscious. I use the human body to convey the vulnerabilities that we all have in common and the animal aspects to show our instinctual nature. I try to reveal what lies underneath the surface of every human being. Frequently, I concentrate on the female form and the "Great Mother Archetype". I use her as a representation of all women. She is good and evil, nurturing and destructive, chaste and titillating. She contains many such dualities as does every woman and every human being." - Ingrid Hendrix

"Bamboo, rocks, and wax linen thread are used to create my sculptures, which contain references to tools, weapons, and musical instruments. In the abstract objects I create, I incorporate a continuous narrative of my own internal culture, one that includes all cultures I am exposed to. Referencing the objects of the past through knots, interwoven lines, and stacking systems, I am creating a story of culture in hopes of calling to mind the story in us all." - Charissa Brock
