Heather McDougal

The Magic Pavilion Tent Company
Head Designer
I have a lot of in-depth knowledge about crafts: glassblowing, ceramics, moldmaking, casting (glass and metal), architectural design, weaving, felting, dying, costuming, sewing, patternmaking, and lots of other things, as well as the history of these arts. I own a tent company (still in the prototype stage) and am involved in the Maker movement. I write about makers in both SF and Fantasy settings, and I'm fascinated by that period in history when alchemy and/or magic transformed into/overlapped with science (I blogged about this for six years on my Cabinet of Wonders blog). Last but not least, I am the Art Director for Strange Horizons magazine.
