Sun Catcher

"I have been creating stained glass in the tiffany copper method for many years now.
I seem to get lost in it, there have been way too many times that I've looked up from creating while in my basement, peering though the window and seeing the sun start to rise. "
- Trish York

Curiosities Satisfied

"I'm inspired by altered art, steampunk, goth, and old watch parts and gears, scarey doll heads, dusty bottles, grungy silverware and the found objects, decay, and moss. I love the interaction between the man-made, the industrial, and the force of nature. And I love, love, love that she always has the last word..."
- Zo MA
