Hi Tom! Is that Thorn Teapot really yours. I don't remember ever seeing it. I also have never seen the bottle stopper. Both very nice pieces. You work is terrific.

An exciting new arts journal, ANCORA IMPARO, went live this month with its latest issue, including an illustrated feature of some of my most noted metalworks and their inspirations in the world of birds, along with thoughts on craft, art, bird photography and the study of natural history. Enjoy your viewing!

Yeah Tom, I had a blast. Let me know when Iris E is speaking in BG and I'll come down for that. I checked the MSG website yesterday and it hadn't been listed yet. Maybe we'll go get drinks afterwards?

Tom,

Tadas named the new black swallowtail butterfly, "Wing." Yesterday, we turned our master bathroom into a butterfly house. We are patiently waiting for the rest of the butterflies to emerge. Today's secret ingredient...mashed watermelon.
