By Kathleen Bean, Lava Lake Owner

Lava Lake is honored to be part of a beautiful exhibit of unique works of art created from materials derived from nine conservation projects around the globe in which The Nature Conservancy is involved. Prominent, talented designers have taken natural materials from conservation sites and created truly extraordinary works of art for the exhibit, designed to draw attention to the importance of supporting sustainable industries. Renowned Dutch textile artist Christien Meindertsma transformed wool from our organic sheep into a rug that is truly a work of art.

An exhibit of these pieces will open at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York in May, 2009 and will travel to museums around the U.S. A coffee table book showcasing the nine featured conservation projects will be available through The Nature Conservancy.
