Our Story

‚ÄčJane and Becky bring their fine art backgrounds in ceramic sculpture and painting to their "ReConfigured" objects by combining a wide variety of materials with the art and craft of the doll maker, puppeteer, model maker, and folk artist. Their themes often revolve around women's social roles, the commotion of daily life and family, as well as the notion that women become more beautiful in later life.

The use of reclaimed or repurposed materials is a metaphor for repurposing or reinventing oneself at various transitions points in life.
