Unangax̂ artist turns recycled glass into household goods
Taytum Robinson is a multimedia artist from Unalaska. She makes jewelry, baskets and, now — glass coasters. The Qawalangin Tribe recently donated recycled glass from Unalaska to a pottery center in Anchorage where Robinson works.
On this episode of "Island Interviews," Robinson discusses how Unalaska plays a role in her artwork. She’s the granddaughter of the late Unangax̂ artist Maria Turnpaugh, whose work may be found in museums around the country.
