"Jelly Bowl" Inspired by a trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
I began my last posting saying, "Can you believe this remarkable weather?" As I look outside the studio today I have to admit, I'm saying the same thing. There's a thin blanket of snow in the yard, and I guess it does go along with the beginning of my Holiday show season.
It's time for the two local shows that I help organize, Crafts at the Capitol in Concord, NH, and Crafts at the Town House in Peterborough. We came up with the saying for the shows, "Shop Local. Shop Quality. Shop for Everyone on your List," and these words really sum up what these two shows are all about. Plus they celebrate the great, vibrant and fun to visit downtowns of Concord and Peterborough. So come for a visit, we look forward to seeing you!
Then we head to college; the Evergreen Fair held at UNH in Durham, NH. This is a fun event, full of the life. There's nothing quite like spending some time with energetic young people to make you feel a litlle bit more alive. It's a joyous event, and I look forward to it every year. If you haven't got your gift shopping done, you will be able to finish it here!
At all the shows, I'll have my 9th annual ornament, "Into the Woods on a Snowy Evening. It's a limited edition, and each ornament is signed, numbered and dated, and is the latest edition to my growing collection of annual ornaments. The perfect gift, it comes comes gift-boxed, ready to hang and be enjoyed.
I will also have what I am now calling my "classic" ornament, "Two Together As OneThis is one everyone should have in their collection.
New work comes out of the kiln weekly, and I will have lots of selection for you to enjoy. Ask me about doodling on glass, or what happens when you experiment with sterling silver and copper encased in glass. Or, did you see what happens when you mix glass with water? Oh, oh,and how about "Rock On" my latest combination of glass with natural materials.
Can't wait to show it off, come for a visit; We look forward to seeing you.
