Close Quarters: Friedrich Kerksieck of Small Fires Press








Close Quarters is a quarterly conversation with one or two interdisciplinary artists, designers, or craftsmen. Sometimes at the artist’s studio, these events allow for close, hands-on examination of work and engaging dialog. The first installment of Close Quarters will be with our very own Friedrich Kerksieck at Small Fires Press.
