Marian Vavra

When Marian has straw in her hand she is a happy person. Living in the middle of Kansas for the past 19 years has inspired her straw art. She makes traditional and contemporary wheat weavings, designs original pieces, and does commissioned work. She teaches, demonstrates, and exhibits at local, state, and national levels. She feels that straw art is part of her inner being and provides a spiritual connection to her farming roots.

Kansas Cross $50
Kansas Cross
Marian is well known for her crosses.
She has recreated this cross for the
American Museum of Straw Art.
In folk belief straw crosses
represent hope and faith.
