Sword Sheath Artist April Kline


April Kline makes and paints tai chi sword sheaths. These unique objects are made predominantly from artist’s canvas, with acrylic paint and sometimes decals and clear coats for protection. Each one tells a story, usually related to her practice of tai chi, but many are whimsical products of her imagination.

First Broadcast: 2007
