Studio Before Fire

Studio After Fire

Glass by Victor Chiarizia

CERF came to my assistance after a fire destroyed my studio. Through CERF I was able to connect with friends and colleagues around the world who contributed the funds and materials I needed to get back on my feet. This outpouring of affection and regard left me with a whole new sense of community support.
