Contributor Gianofer Fields brings us the story of how material culture meets sense of place.

A material culture student at UW-Madison, Fields produces and curates the series, "It's A Material World."

The project is funded by the Chipstone Foundation, a decorative arts foundation whose mission is preserving and interpreting their collection, as well as stimulating research and education in the decorative arts.
