Seven Days at Arrowmont...oh and nights too!

I'm writing this blog because I won a bit of a jackpot you see. I received the 2016 Crafthaus/Arrowmont scholarship and I get to spend one week at Arrowmont learning from the masters. And as if this is not enough, I also get to blog about it too!See More

Roxy, I discovered your work on Pinterest!  All I can say is WOW! I love your aesthetic, you do amazing things with found objects, shapes and patinas. Awesome! Need a friend?

Ooooo! Nummy! I'm still on the photo part of the submission. A friend who wants to get into this type of work is trying, but the results aren't spectacular yet, except for one. Plus, I'm holding out 'til this weekend as I'm determined to come up with yet another couple of pieces that I can choose from.

You are right about VDV . . . I'll be over the top with just one piece in that show!

oxox! -b.

At 10:40pm on September 22, 2012, Brenda Schweder said…

It's my first try too. Are you submitting the maximum of five? I'd love to see what you're putting up--all the luck in the world! oxox! -b.

Love this work. It is so very strong and very, very brave. I wish I had the courage to leave my surfaces alone!

Dear Roxy,


Welcome to crafthaus, the network for fine craft artists and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us! Your crafthaus membership is valid through Feb 15, 2013.

Please look around and add your thoughts to the groups, blogs and discussions. Crafthaus is a participatory sport!

Please note that ALL images sent to the website editor are vetted to assure a measure of overall quality control. Unlike other image sharing websites, crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Our members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience (their peers,) so the photos have to be GREAT. Our goal is to show our members' work in the best possible light. From the many images received daily, we aim to post as many as possible. Crafthaus heartily encourages comments from the membership, however, with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect! :-)

If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via crafthauseditor@live.com anytime, I will do my best to be of help.

I hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun.

Again: Welcome !

Brigitte Martin
Crafthaus Editor
