ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
PAUL KAULFERS is a gay man living with AIDS from Scranton, PA who taught ceramics to young people at Project Reach's Social Justice Boot Camp. An experienced clay artist of 18 years, Kaulfers almost exclusively works with reclaimed clay from the studio and hand alters his wheel thrown forms. His high fired stoneware and porcelain works feature hand mixed studio glazes. Kaulfers is an apprentice at Burti Ceramics, a large community studio in northeastern PA, has volunteered at youth camps, Project Reach, and assisted with public school programs and college courses.
AUDREY SACRED RAVEN is an artist and designer from the Crow Nation in Montana. She is the granddaughter of the last traditional Crow War Chief and noted tribal historian/anthropologist Joe Medicine Crow. Inspired by the legendary tales of her tribe she began creating clothing and regalia by the age of 16. Her beadwork designs are worn by some of the top Native American powwow dancers in the country, making her one of the most sought after designers in the area. While her pieces are inspired by the distinctive style of her tribe, she has developed her own recognizable style, what she calls High Plains Haute Couture. Unique jewelry and accessories boldy decorated with classic Crow geometric symbols and lush jewel colored beads and rhinestones.
