Marcia Widenor's Biographical Statement:
"In their simplest form, a length of linen cloth from a Pharaoh's tomb, the linen bed sheets of my great grandmother, a sheet of tough translucent flax paper made in a New York City loft and a curtain of hand spun flax string are all related. They come directly from organic materials, they have their own wonderful colorless color, and they bear the marks of the hand that made them.
