    Judith Schaechter: A Sensous and Cruel Material

    Judith Schaechter:  Stain glass artist that has redefined the scope of contemporary art in both materials and subject matter.

Her work can be seen all over the world in major museums and galleries including:  Smithsonian Institution, the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.

Dorsey went on to become a world-renowned session player, singer, and writer.
