Lily Liu and husband John Hasegawa teach ceramics at Paducah School of Art & Design, but Lily has become known for her remarkable fiber techniques. Her intricate sculptures and jewelry pieces are fashioned by folding, rolling and tying hundreds of fabric pieces together. “Making every minute count” inspires her to be a productive artist.
