Leslie B. Grigsby, Senior Curator of Ceramics and Glass at Winterthur Museum in Delaware, lives and creates her artwork in Chester County, Pennsylvania. Her sculptures feature glass seed beads and thread, worked in off-loom bead-weaving techniques, sometimes over a core made of wood or other materials. Her designs variously are inspired by science fiction, science fact, art history and/or Nature. Technical assistance, especially regarding woodworking and assembly, generously is provided by Leslie’s husband, Lindsay Grigsby.
