See more work by Madeline Kaczmarczyk at her website. She relates her creative process to her family in the statement below.

I was the little girl who always made potholders on a plastic loom on the backyard picnic table. I am the daughter of Irene who baked the fabulous cakes with four tiers of frosted roses, fiber optic lights and fountains. I am the granddaughter of Francis who crocheted tablecloths for the bosses at Ford Motors so her husband could keep his job during the Depression. The women in our family make beauty with their hands. At the core was the need to express what could not be put in words and for the joy of creation. The more fine detail and embellishment, the greater the accomplishment.” — Madeline Kaczmarczyk
