Armed with a degree in art history and a background as a director of an art gallery, it was a natural step for Daria Knowles to see art in everything around her. Seeing vast fields of pumpkins, Knowles combined her love for fabrics and color with the natural shapes in the fields. Working with the farmers, she and her friends harvested the discarded stems and "Hot Skwash" was born at the kitchen table. These vibrant creations bring fall colors into your home. Don't be surprised when you find yourself collecting new pieces!
