According to Val Kiri, her ceramics are “a celebration of relationships and creativity”. Val Kiri
has been doing tilework for Cosanti Originals for three years, and privately for two.
Sue Anaya’s intricate beadwork “is an ongoing experiment in understanding the language
of color and images that encompass the essence of a particular moment, emotion, or story”.
Sue works as an archivist for the Cosanti Foundation.
