McDonah’s work includes highly ornamental metal reliquaries. Her detailed designs aim to glorify the importance of the objects inside the vessels by drawing the eye to the containers. She is an assistant metals professor at Millersville University in Millersville, Penn.

The Craft Center galleries are open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, and admission is free. The Craft Center is located approximately six miles from Interstate 40 at exit 273 (Smithville/McMinnville). Go south on Highway 56; turn left immediately after crossing Hurricane Bridge. This drive leads to the Craft Center.
