"Jelly Bowl" Inspired by a trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Happy May! Gray is gone, Green in In. Things are growing here. Life is good.
After a bit of a slow spring, my time in the studio has roared back to life! I've got new work that I am very excited about.
And here's the story. It's my crazy combination of inspiration, material, and creativity. It reminds me to keep a young heart, to try new things, and it makes me smile. My hope is that Jo-Bird makes you smile too!
The process of this project probably started years ago with the admiration of a drawing by my nephew, Jo. Then last year I added a box of interesting glass, purchased at an estate sale. I added it to my stash with no real idea of what I would ever do with it. Then this winter I was on my watercolor paintings, and really let loose on my crazy, colorful, skinny leg bird drawings. And then I got an idea. Could I take that interesting glass and make my birds with it? Could I? Meet my Jo-Bird.
My birds and I are hitting the road this May. First, we head to Tarrytown, NY and the show at the Lyndhurst Castle.

And of course...you know I've got a new little something up my sleeve for earring lovers! Come see us!
