In the summer of 2008 sculptor Manfred Müller was invited by Oaxacan artist Francisco Toledo to hold a series of workshops at the Taller de Papel, the paper mill in San Agustín Etla. While working with the young artisans at San Agustín the artist began creating mandiles or aprons inspired by the working environment. Upon returning to California, Manfred decided to create apron prototypes and give them to his artist friends whose work he admires, who then came up with their own interpretation of aprons as one of a kind objects. The aprons of Jo Ann Callis are featured as part of our 2015 Holiday Staff Picks.
