"Distorted Grace" is an incredibly unique piece, created by Pat & Karen Miller, a local husband/wife artist team. The cherrywood came from an old orchard full of big trees near Naches. The vessel was turned on a wood lathe while still green and allowed to dry. The orientation of the green wood in the initial working stage allows the experienced artist some control over the final shape. Cylindrical to begin with, this piece is now 2" wider than it is deep, although very symmetrical. The top is turned and carved from a block of African Blackwood, an expensive and limited hardwood from Central Africa. A small spire from free range brass, also turned on the lathe, adds contrast and interest.
All proceeds from this piece are earmarked for our Enrichment Fund.
Here at St. Joseph Marquette Catholic School, it is our mission to build community and educate the total child (spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially) in values consistently with the teachings of Jesus Christ. We invite you to help us accomplish this goal by attending our largest fundraiser of the year, the Fresh Catch Dinner & Auction. The fun-filled evening includes both live and silent auctions, dinner by Debbie's Catering and a dessert dash, followed by dancing. Hope to see you there!
