A year into our work in fiber, I was living in St. Paul, and Lori in Minneapolis, MN (known as the “Twin Cities” as it were). This cathedral stood down the block from my little studio apartment. Being an architecture buff, I admired it several times a day, often contemplating the thoughtfulness and the intention involved in creating such a building – from it’s gorgeous design to the laying of the mason’s last brick. Now, when I happen upon a photo of this piece, I feel like I’m back in St. Paul staring at that beautiful copper dome, being reminded again of the vast magnitude of creativity we’re all capable of.
