ARTIST OF THE MONTH: BARBARA CLAAS

February 1 through February 28, 2018

“Although inspired by nature, I particularly like finding abstract patterns like weathered pine trunks or twigs collected in a stream,” says self-taught artist and Cleveland resident Barbara Claas. “I enjoy turning natural materials and human artifacts into jewelry or art, which led to the current series of flowers created from recycled plastic bottles and caps.”
