Demonstrating at the University of South Carolina



Early in February I had the opportunity to conduct workshops at the University of South Carolina and Augusta State University. I wish to thank Virginia Scotchie and Priscilla Hollingsworth for the chance to work with some very talented students. I have many new thoughts and ideas that will be in the works as soon as I am able to get into the studio again after my upcoming surgery.…

Winter is gonna end. Right?

These are the things that are waking me up at 3 a.m.:

- moving into a new apartment in 3 days.

- show opening in two weeks

- another show opening the first week of April.

- the snow storm we are getting today that will keep me from running around the city which i absolutely NEED to do in order to get all this stuff done.

I have finished all but the last bit of the necklaces for the March show (just need to attach chain, but can't do that until i go…

Opening Night



Successful polymer artists Steven Ford and David Forlano's opening night presentation at Synergy mirrored their relationship. They easily bantered back and forth from opposite sides of the stage, building concepts in tandem and with good humor. They jibed each other about work habits and control issues while…

Greetings Fellow Crafthaus Members!



I've added all the little painted details that make these better. Half are stewing in their own juices nearly completed, the other half are waiting for more paint. I can only do so many hours of tiny stippling and stripes before I lose my marbles. Being freakishly nearsighted may have something to do with my surface tendencies. I hope you're all out there rushing to finish the way I…

I'm hoping this will be as interesting to other conference goers as it is to me--I've started a Flickr group for everyone to post either process shots or complete groupings of their Swap Pins for this year's conference. Hopefully it will be a venue for those who want to build some buzz or simply want a way to share in the next three weeks. If you don't already have a Flickr account, it's… Continue

Lucid Dream Art

I went to bed as normal last night; meaning midnight and reached for my daily crossword puzzles, Sudoko, and switched on Criminal Mind repeats on ION. So there's another hour of awake time. Finally, my eyes tire and I'm ready to turn off the light and try to sleep. As an artist, sometimes this is difficult as I lay there and actually worry about

my art-making process. What do I have to do tomorrow? What are my

deadlines? What did I do to…

Spellion, Greece writes about SIERAAD art fair Amsterdam

The international Art Fair Sieraad was held in the cultural park of Westergasfabriek, in the facilities of the British Imperial Continental Gas Association that were designed by Isaac Gosschalk as another version of the “Dutch Renaissance” and constructed in 1883. In Gashouder, designed by the engineer Klönne, the arresting dome-like roof of the old gas tank - an art work of the early 20th century engineering itself - sheltered in an exceptional manner the small objects of art presented by… Continue

"Buffare" (brooch) 2010, composite and epoxy resin, paint, nickel silver scatter pins, 3.25" x 3.75" x 2"





I've been juggling pieces for the conference over the last few days. This first image is for the Silent Auction. I had hoped I'd have something already available, but after reviewing my options I decided to just go ahead and make a new piece. It's still a bit oozey today so you get a process shot for now. I'm hot for… Continue

Favorite ring a day Ring

My favorite ring from the ring a day project is the ring that has yet to be made.

It is the ring of possibility. The one that exists in the moment of creation-

I love this ring because it is ever changing- it holds many forms and ideas, and is executed

in a multitude of techniques and designs by talented artists in a variety of studios.



The ring that has yet to be made is one of possibility and promise: it can make you laugh, cry...it can hold a beautiful… Continue

Life has many layers - like lasagna.

I've been absent from these pages for the summer while I started a new book and concentrated on getting some flute projects out the door. This month I've actually (gulp) taken a spare bag or two of time to myself and done sweet fork all. What a treat that was. It's been at least a century since I could live a couple of weeks without feeling compelled to do anything.Well, not nothing... (How can any self respecting obsessive compulsive polymath really do nothing ?) That would be unconscionable.…See More
