A Life of Contemplation—and Creativity

Sister Jeanne Deuber

Meet Sister Jeanne Deuber, an artist who lives and works with the Sisters of Loretto at the Loretto Motherhouse in Marion County. Schooled as a medical illustrator, she creates liturgical and other compositions of rich realism in wood, clay, and other media.

Because of her education, Sister Jeanne fills her work with rich details of the human form. But her solitary life and religious vocation also inspire intriguing abstractions in works that celebrate death and resurrection.

This segment originally aired in Kentucky Life Program 104.

Seeking the Furniture of the Future ...

Bittners design competition

More creativity is on display in our next segment, which features a national furniture design competition sponsored by Bittners of Louisville.

Founded in 1850, Bittners has always prided itself on being on the cutting edge of interior design and furniture styling. So, in conjunction with the University of Kentucky, the company sponsored the Design on the Edge contest for college students nationwide. After rigorous judging, the winning piece, by a student from the University of Texas at Austin, was hand-built by Bittners craftsmen.

... and Making the ‘Ice Cream of the Future’

Dippin’ Dots

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ... dots? Paducah’s Curt Jones certainly hopes so. He’s the inventor of Dippin’ Dots ice cream, a new form of a very old treat.

Dippin’ Dots, which look like small, colorful BBs, are a sort of digital ice cream—discrete bits of frozen confection that can be mixed and matched in any combination you dare to try. Only inside the mouth do they melt to the familiar texture of America’s favorite summertime treat.

Because of their novelty, their portability, and their “scoopability,” Dippin’ Dots are already a fixture at many amusement park concession stands. And with new flavors and new retailers constantly being added, chances are you’ll soon be able to find them somewhere near you, too.
