I am thinking about going up for SOFA; maybe i can go over and see it! Is this new work, or a mix of old and new? I recognize the balloon piece from your UIUC days -- did you re-inflate balloons for all those wire frames? You go, girl!
great, i saw some more of your work in columbus at the ODC show (I also had 2 pieces in it). i really loved that particular brooch in that show. would love to see more, i'm sure i'll see you around the toledo/BG scene.
