Transforming crafts into art

Featured in San Francisco Examiner (9 August 1992)

There are Sausalitoan Timothy Rose's colorful mobiles ("hang 'em anywhere and smile") and Laura Ann Jacobs' narrow nine-drawer dresser that resembles a giant rabbit. Priced at $7,000, it seems to have something in every drawer, including a carrot telephone (it works) and a large built-in clock. "The price was lower," says Jacobs, "but I keey adding things. It's not finished yet, but I'll come to your house and finish it for the same price."
