Genie Bottles

In 2005, Lara began making vessels from paper, cardboard, acetate, and yarn. These curious "genie bottles" (as she likes to call them) are adorned with various vintage jewels and findings, and have confetti sandwiched between the layers.



Lara became interested in quilting after agreeing to make quilts for the Mary Munford Elementary School fund raising auction. For three years she oversaw the creation of class quilts for each grade level. Each student contributed one piece of original artwork. Here are some of those quilts, as well as some of her personal quilts.
