Lucilla Warren (1942 – 2011) was born in a copper mining town in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona. Her father worked in heavy construction, moving the family nomadically from project to project.
“ So often being the ‘new kid’ in town threw me back into my own resources, fostered an early self-reliance, and developed the ability to entertain myself with just my imagination.”
She credited this part of her early life throughout Southwest remote areas for her love of the “textures of sandstone, granite and polished turquoise”, for a love of “the glow of gold, silver and copper”. This was expressed in her interest in archeology and her work in fiber arts and jewelry.
