Meet Our Artisans
Referencing the long, rich history of textiles and expanding the notion of the book form, Raines creates structures that capture and remember the small, but often momentous details of daily life. Combining the familiarity of found objects with original, handmade pieces, her work incorporates a wide variety of materials including paper, fiber, glass and steel.
Robyn Raines is a graduate of Moore College of Art in Philadelphia and completed the Core Fellowship Program at Penland School of Crafts.
