Featured Maker: Christine Betow

Christine Betow will be exhibiting Propolis at Orlando Mini Maker Faire 2012.  Propolis was built for Burning Man 2010, and has since been featured in several other art installations.  Christine recently moved to Orlando, FL where she spends her days making metal art. She was inspired to learn welding after attending Burning Man in 2006 where she saw The Flaming Lotus Girl’s piece, Serpent Mother. Christine began taking fabricating and forging classes at the Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle, WA, and in 2010, she made and brought her first piece, Propolis, to Burning Man.

We are VERY excited to have Christine and Propolis at Orlando Mini Maker Faire!
