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
Hi Anne, I just enjoyed looking through your photos...your pigeon holed series strikes me right now, as I'm trying to break from just that thing. Your creative connections framing your pieces in are inspirational. Best wishes!
“While striving to incorporate fashion and function in my body of work, Joe’s was created. Reflecting on the glamor once held by tobacco use, I pulled imagery from vintage cigarette advertisements. Once used to seduce the consumer, I take this now taboo subject matter and place it over the belt as a means of advertising and seduction of both the product and body. This reminds my audience of the cultural change that has evolved into the disapproval of tobacco usage and advertising.”

One would expect Jewelry artists to be limited to objects of personal adornment, but many contemporary makers in this field have gone beyond the constraints of functionality to pursue conceptual interests in areas such as photography, kinetics and sculpture. This exhibition seeks makers whose work demands…See More
This mural is drawn with one single line, an approach to craft that I have developed over the past three years.The line has been tested on ceramic tiles, drawings, canvas frames, pots and murals. When I finished drawing the mural, I traced my left hand at the very end of the continuous line (I am right handed), in order to start introducing myself, as the only inhabitant of this room, into the mural itself. To…See More

Another two-week hiatus between posts and it is only because I've been too busy to be able to find a moment to write things down. So much has happened, from being asked if I were "eligible" for inclusion in a list of "eligible bachelors" - my non-bachelor status making me ineligible for the inclusion - to being asked to write an article for a new jewellery magazine about something which isn't jewellery!
The main thing on the workbench has been another of my projects which was…
