“As one long involved in conservation and environmental concerns, I have been in favor of retrieving that which seemed old/useless/spoiled and through invention and creative thinking, returning it to a new, useful or inspirational purpose. This project appeared as an opportunity for me to be involved.”Ruth Bercaw
