Process: “a systematic series of actions, physical or mental, directed to some end”
—The Oxford English Dictionary

When we see a finished work of art, especially a craft object, we
don’t often grasp the many steps taken to arrive at that point of
completion. We hope that by presenting documenta­tion of “process” in
addition to these objects, viewers will gain a deeper understanding of
the maker’s intimate experience of creation.
