5. Kristy Perez: ALL THAT STANDS BETWEEN US

They say (in part): "Every work is started and hopefully finished, true (i.e. without decoration). There is no strict or formal doctrine. I use whatever materials are available (tripped over, stolen, given, traded, purchased). Craft is important to me as it speaks of tradition. I do believe in bringing an element of discipline and precision to my work but allow myself to be more free in the handling of some materials as I have learned, that poetry, is a favorite bedfellow of both the “ugly” and “pristine”."
