Notes from Carla:

"I have chosen to use clay and beads as mediums, because each medium gives each piece the ability to become a family heirloom due to their longevity. Each medium also lends itself very well to capturing the natural beauty associated with nature."

 "I fell in love with beaded flowers on a cloudy winter day, when I spotted a beaded bouquet on display in the window of a storefront. I realized then, the eternal beauty and illusion of the beaded flowering plant and the fact that the piece would never fade or wilt with the passing of time. I was inspired with the delight that this medium allowed one to place an ever-flowering bouquet of blossoms in any dark corner of a room giving the room more color and life no matter what the season."

"Though producing this art is very time consuming, the long life of every piece is well worth the care I put into producing them. I lace each petal larger than one inch with very fine wire to help hold it in shape and to increase the durability of the finished piece. My techniques allow me to hide the wire framework of each piece for added realism."

"After 30 years, my love for this time-tested art has only grown with each piece I create. My first beaded bouquet is as vibrant today as the day I finished it. My years of experience in this medium have allowed me to develop techniques to pattern and produce any flower or plant. This allows the creation of any custom shape or form with the beads on wire."
