Mood:  crushed out
Now Playing: My name tag
Topic: Beading

After being honored to be accepted at one of the largest shows in Indy, I just felt I HAD to have a proper name tag.  It was also a good excuse to bead a fish.  Sorry folks...only post for the night...

 This quirky little pin was done as a challenge to bead courage.  I got this "Picasso-ish" cab in Providence, Rhode Island on a wild trip by myself exploring in a taxi.  Symbolized the courage of artist to express themselves, even when what they express is bit out of the norm.  That's all for tonight.....sweet dreams.

I'm going to post some old favs, just for pure fun.   This was an experimental technique done for a valentine bracelet swap.  Blue Jean Valentine

Topic: PMC

Yeah!  Here we go now....

Taught classes Thursday, Friday and Saturday at Sally's Ceramics here in P'boro.  Thursday was polymer clay, Friday and Saturday were pmc.  Here's somma the things I created as demos for beginners.  The glass cabs in this pic are from playing with new glass molds and porcelain decals on glass.

When life gets in the way...lock the studio and play

I have come to the blog world in hopes of sharing art play, experiments and general musings.

While the whole website thing can be a bit daunting, I am hoping the blog will be a place to share just plain fun.  Many times I create pieces that aren't necessarily in my "common" line of works.  I can now document these oddities and ramble on about them, right?
