Why I use wool for my fiber sculptures, and why you can appreciate wool in art for the home.

Zati is an Urdu word that means "from the inside" or "from an inner place."

These masks came to Susan in a dream, after which Susan wove according to the dream. The result is over 150 Zati handwoven masks.
