CAROL STANGLER Author & Environmental Artist
Environmental Artist Carol Stangler has been experimenting with bamboo since 1988. Recognizing bamboo as a "new" material for Western artists and craftpersons, she has worked to bring its artistic and sustainable value to the mainstream public. Since the publication of her book, The Craft and Art of Bamboo, Stangler has taught bamboo workshops throughout the county. She lives and maintains the Bird Tribe Studio in Asheville, North Carolina.

"Bamboo's exotic physical properties delight and challenge me. Each cylindrical culm has its own graceful curve, its unique set of parallel rings.
In a square world, round sings." - Carol Stangler
