We just wrapped up another "Working with Frit and Powders" workshop.
It is just a big old bunch of fun every time. The random goofiness of the forms makes every kiln load a surprise. What a wonderful group of people - many thanks for a great workshop.
The next one is scheduled for October 28-29, 2017. There's still time to join us in the studio, I'd love to see you. Details are on the workshop page.
Also - thanks to all who came to the open studio tour last weekend. It was nice to meet new people and see old friends. And it was great to have an excuse to clean up the studio. It doesn't happen that often. Right now it looks about twice as big as it did two weeks ago. I'll enjoy it until it fills up with piles of art stuff again.
Hope to see you -
More Workshops Coming -
In between snow flurries I think to myself, "spring is almost here!" Oh, brother. Talk about optimism. But I see the first blossoms on the forsythia, so I am determined to plan for the future.
Now that my studio has a lovely new window, I have a nice cozy place for workshops. I've decided to teach a few techniques this spring - April and May dates to be firmed up soon. I'll be sending out a newsletter with all the details in the next couple weeks, so be sure to sign up!
Here's a little preview:
The Rob Schouten Gallery on Whidbey Island has a gift for pairing art and poetry. I was delighted to have my piece, "View from the Forest Floor" chosen to be paired with this impressive poem by David Wagoner in the gallery's latest postcard. Perfect.
