Artist Profile

Furnituremakers  J.M. Syron and Bonnie Bishoff demonstrate a polymer clay veneer technique. Their small chest was on view in Inspired by China, Contemporary Furnituremakers Explore Chinese Traditions, which began with a three-day workshop for artists so they could examine historic pieces and then draw from the forms and materials to create their own works of art for the exhibition the following year.

In 2004, PEM partnered with Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Project and hosted Sights and Sounds of the Silk Road, a series of performances and educational and cultural activities that connected the museum’s collections with other forms of creative response. This video was produced as a result of this initiative.
