Barbara Woods is best known for hand painted silk using the Gutta Serti technique.

Barbara paints silk using the Gutta Serti technique to create her unique painted silk and ceramic light sculptures.

Working in slab-constructed clay she carves and forms the bases and bodies. She adds color using patinas and paint matching the bases with the painted silk.
The results are free standing lighted sculptures, some depicting winged creatures, others moth chrysalises. Each piece is a unique handcrafted sculpture that will warmly illuminate your home...
