Hi, Anne! Thanks for the friend request! I cruised your photos this morning; so enjoy looking at your work! I wear my little earrings often and always get nice comments. Hope you are well, too. I give my last final exam tomorrow and then it's all over but the grading -- hooray for summer in the studio!
Hi Anne, Thank you for the kind words! Graphite was the focus of my thesis in school. I fell in love with the physical quality of it, and that it could also make marks. I've tried using it in enamels a couple of times, and it's interesting. I like that it becomes permanent in the enamel. Your enamels are gorgeous! I particularly love the settings. They are so well composed.
I won't be in Toronto. My father passed away and I'm going to his memorial...I'm leaving soon and in the middle of grading before I go. but off the top of my head for exhaust fans, I purchased one from Grainger many years ago and talked with an engineer that was very helpful. Tell them what you are doing and they will suggest something. Getting a bigger one than you need is better then one that is too small, and the Less bends in your duct work the better, and if you have to have a bend, two 45 degree angles is better then one 90. Strait up to the roof is the best. Contact me again if you need to. I'll have more time in the next few weeks. -deb

Fellow deep sighers, it seems more people in the field are currently looking into these questions. Here is an interesting post by Leslie Ferrin which I saw on Critical Craft Forum on May 19:
"Our work over the years has brought us into direct contact with a few of the perspectives on this issue. Collectors and elderly people who are approaching the final stages of life often become concerned about what happens to the collection…"
"I am in the boomer generation, and when I was starting out life on my own, I didn't want what my parents had, or anyone else's parents, so it is reasonable that the new generation doesn't either. The boomer generation seems to be the…"
"In addition to my artwork, I do silver repair. Very few of the pieces I repair are from silver collectors. Most silver is inherited from family. Some pieces are in bad shape, or the silver is in need of repair after it was broken by the next…"
"This is a really interesting article. I'm a designer, maker and educator, and I've noticed that more and more students coming in are X and Y's. It's easy to label them, and not necessarily fair to paint them all with the same…"
