“It (wire mesh) had transparency, and also it reflected light. It was delicate but strong, smooth to the touch, but also could draw blood if not handled properly.”
– Artist Kristi Swee Kuder (www.southwestjournal.com)
Recently, one of Darby’s customers was featured in Southwest Journal, Southwest Minneapolis’ community newspaper. Over the years, Darby has worked with numerous artists, and we’re proud to say that Kristi Swee Kuder is another one of our favorite artists.
A trained artist, Kristi wrestled with the effects of mental illness on her youngest son and became inspired to explore her creative side using a product that is both messy and beautiful.
