Thinking Summer

it seems the only thing to chase away a wretched cold is to lock oneself away in a tiny studio and work nine hours a day.
My health has improved, somehow I caught up on my sleep quota, and I produce a many fine item.

This neckpiece, as I mentioned in an earlier post, will be heading to the Salty Teacup in Portland, Oregon for their grand opening on April 2nd.
I really should take some photos of the finished piece as I oxidized (of course!) the necklace before setting the buttons.
It. is. a. killer.

The piece below is for my own inventory.
I included two porcelain cabs from Magpie Pottery.
I LOVE. LOVE LOVE Maggie's work!
I have a lovely selection of her cabs, all waiting patiently for
a new home.

I apologize. The photo does not do the colors justice.
The colors are far richer and more of a minky,
burgandy than the photo suggests.

Lastly, I was juried into the Common Ground Country Fair this coming September! We had a blast last year and made many new friends and customers. I'm thrilled to be
a vendor again this year!

Is it too early to start talking fairs?
I certainly have to think 6 months ahead of now....that puts me in early Septmeber with 3 shows over and done with, happily eating tomatoes straight from the vine, and enjoying the wonder that is late summer.

Barefoot, I may add.



  1. do really, really great work. I agree, there is absolutely nothing like a day in the studio to make anything better!

  2. Thank you, Metallo Bianco!!! Every minute in studio is precious especially when there is a little person running around demanding attention (yay for naps and preschool!!).
