Soul's Journey LogoSoul's Journey: Inside the Creative Process was created to provide viewers with insight into the creative process as it is revealed through the work of studio craft artists with diverse cultural backgrounds living and working in the Southern United States. Many nationally recognized and successful "makers" were chosen to be part of the programs.

The selection criteria are important to understand. Firstly, selected individuals who make outstanding work. Secondly, considerations were made for inclusion of artists from different ethnic backgrounds, geographical areas-urban and rural, and artists of different ages and gender. And thirdly, artists were chosen to represent different media areas: wood, metal, fiber, clay, glass, and furniture. A balance in these areas was attempted to illustrate the broad diversity found in the professional contemporary craft industry in America.

More than 200 hours of raw footage were captured in the journey to studios from Florida to Virginia. Often recording sessions with the individual artists required visiting their studios several times to document the progression from idea to reality. The "gems" of this experience form the kernel of Soul's Journey: Inside the Creative Process. The series represents a video tapestry of contemporary studio crafts in a new and different way.
