My Domestic Goddesses series began when I picked up an old industrial iron in an old
garment business in Baltimore. It sat in my studio for years. I kept looking at it
wondering why I couldn't throw it away. It was heavy and dark and had a rather foreboding
look. Then one day it hit me - an iron maiden. The ranks of Domestic Goddesses have been
growing ever since. These one-of-a-kind pieces combine household items with hand built
ceramic frames and hand embroidery.
