Family (#302H) Duration: 56:46 STEREO TVG

This episode explores the creative home environments and personal dynamics of four families of craft artists and asks: Is talent inherited? What's it like to live in a household where objects are made by hand? In this episode, former President Jimmy Carter shares stories of Ed Moulthrop, a fellow Georgian who is known as the father of modern woodturning. Philip Moulthrop followed a career path similar to his father's. Trained as a lawyer, he found greater satisfaction making unique wood bowls. Matt Moulthrop apprenticed with his father and grandfather and continues the family tradition. Paul Marioni creates sculptural glass forms. An early member of the San Francisco Studio Glass Movement, as a single father he moved to Seattle, center of American glass, where his gifted son, Dante Marioni continues to make internationally recognized work. Dante's sister Marina Marioni is also a craft artist, creating jewelry that plays with form and meaning, much like her father's sculptures play with visual puns. Tradition and invention are the center of the Lee household in rural Pennsylvania where potter Cliff Lee and metal artist Holly Lee live and work together in their 18th century Dutch farmhouse. The Lees have two sons who grew up playing in their parents' studios, learning the hard work it takes to succeed as a self-employed artist. Oklahoma's Lisa Sorrell is one of a very few women who make custom cowboy boots. Following her passion and defying parental expectations, she established her place in a male-dominated field. Lisa's two teenage daughters have decided to follow in their mother's footsteps and are each becoming artists in their own right.
