Becca Lowry carves intricate wall-mounted sculptures out of wood, which she decorates with painting and weaving. She is interested in ideas of use, architecture, vulnerability and bravery, and has said she thinks of her creations as "shields." In our visit to her Connecticut studio, she discussed why she chose not to go to art school, her experience growing up as the daughter of a builder and a jeweler, and how objects can take on sacred and protective functions.
