"Jelly Bowl" Inspired by a trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Long days, moonlit kayak paddles, campfires, new squash from the garden, time spent with family and friends...ahhh the joys of the season.
And, time working with glass, creating new work, getting ready for the great shows of summer. I'm having lots of fun playing with varying glass and silver combinations in my "silver pools" series, and experimenting with some new stones combined with glass (not to mention some fabulous new pearls!), I spent some time outside collecting ferns for a few new botanicals, and ta da, imagined my latest work, "l'art du jardin." Yes, I'm making "art on a stick!" and enjoying every moment of this bright, new colorful work. Inside, outside, totem, whimsy, fun, playful...that's my ''art du jardin!"
From the mountains, to the sea....
In July I'll be travelling to Guilford. CT to the Guilford Arts Center Craft Expo July 17, 18 & 19.
