hello everyone, just wanted to report of a beautiful studio visit i had today and of 2 beautiful people i finally met in person....carolyn and bob, of ornament magazine.
given the fact that i am deep in (i call it) frenzy-show-mode, currently preparing 2 shows for april, nyc (http://www.artrider.com/CNY11.html) & dc (http://www.smithsoniancraftshow.org/indexmain.asp) and trays and bits of work in progress are disseminated throughout my studio.....i was a bit apprehensive, i must confess, about the effect complete caos might have on outsiders.
but carolyn and bob completely fell into the grove so to speak and we spent the next 2 hours talking and touching upon a variety of subjects, from the small technical chit chat (which, btw, i love...;-) from the california years to gelato in italy and all the jewelry and metalwork related issues you can squeeze in 2 hours....i greatly appreciated their warmth and down to earth humanity and their continuing interest in the process behind the object one ultimately sees... maybe even touches.
i am thankful for and honored by their visit.
