Kelly Parker received the 2016 TKF Professional Development Award in September. Kelly is currently in The Michael Fortune Fellowship program, during which she will participate in MASW’s Artist-in-Residency Program. Then, with the help of TKF Professional Development Award, Kelly will work on advanced wood bending techniques as an artist-in-residence at the Centre for Fine Woodworking in Nelson, New Zealand.
While tackling bending wood at CFW, Kelly will continue her focus on design, mixed media, and using reclaimed wood, “I think that the story of the wood's former life is an important one, and I write 'the story' for every piece that I make. The story includes where the wood came from, what it used to be and a lot about the process of building the piece.”
