Saw your collaborative piece that you made with Loring last night at the cooperative tableware show.  Very cool work!  I love it when two artists that I dig get together like that!  Congrats

Hi Francesca,

I'm curating an online exhibition called "Piece Progressions" and would love for you to be a part of it. I think your varied materials and lovely final pieces would add something really unique. You can see details of the exhibition here: http://crafthaus.ning.com/group/crafthausexhibition/forum/topics/call-for-entries-piece?xg_source=msg_mes_network

If you have any questions feel free to contact me; it would be great to have you as part of the exhibition!

hi francesca!

yes, i enjoyed meeting you, as well.  i'm such a great fan of your work.

my friend, brighid, came to your booth (she's the one who was living in milan and is now headed for sao paulo) and bought a pair of your cufflinks (little blue ones with spiderman on them...such fun!)  she told me you have your dad looking for interesting paper for you.

i hope we do another show together soon!

Life has many layers - like lasagna.

I've been absent from these pages for the summer while I started a new book and concentrated on getting some flute projects out the door. This month I've actually (gulp) taken a spare bag or two of time to myself and done sweet fork all. What a treat that was. It's been at least a century since I could live a couple of weeks without feeling compelled to do anything.Well, not nothing... (How can any self respecting obsessive compulsive polymath really do nothing ?) That would be unconscionable.…See More
