Cara Romano ChildAfter earning a BFA from the University of Maine in 2002 Romano went onto participate in a traditional internship with master Metalsmith, Curtis K. LaFollette in Cherryfield Maine. LaFollette’s wife, Marion was a weaver who taught Romano the rich traditions of textiles and fiber. Romano’s work transformed into a combination of both their mediums incorporating ancient textile techniques into her metal work.

She shares a studio space on Main street in Ellsworth Maine where she makes her one-of-a-kind and limited production collections.
