Fowle featured in Humor in Craft

Darlington County sculptor Patz Fowle is featured in the recently released book Humor in Craft.  One of her featured works, He's Gone Fishing in His Head, is shown above. 

Patz Fowle's Artist Statement from Humor in Craft:

I very much enjoy the process of creating engaging, expressive characters with humorous elements--a "what if" scenario where humor plays a key role in the narrative. I believe humor is the dessert of life itself. 

Brief Description of Humor in Craft from Amazon.com:

What happens when professional craft artists are allowed to let loose – when they get to explore their mischievous and irreverent sides? Find out in this groundbreaking book, which, for the very first time, reveals an entirely different side of “serious” craft. Hundreds of images and essays from all over the world allow you to gain insight into the creative minds of contemporary artists like never before. A variety of traditional craft media are shown, such as furniture, ceramics, glass, fiber, jewelry, and metal, as well as a number of unique, nontraditional techniques. Even a bus shelter in London gets a creative make-over that’s sure to make you smile! The topics range from the playful to the serious, but the message is always most enjoyable. Humor in Craft is a treasure trove for craft aficionados and humor enthusiasts alike.
