Miel. It was such an excellent weekend. I'm really glad we got to spend a little down time last Sunday after the workshop. I've been itching to make some ball sockets and do some chasing and repousse. Hope our paths cross again soon.
miel!!! very cool that you are exhibiting in the Connect show - and that job at laika sounds soooooo fun! i am coming to portland in august and i'm gonna look you up. all is well here and i hope the same is true for you!
Thank you -- I am such a big fan of your work as well! I remember being blown away by "Deliberate" when I first saw it (I think on the SNAG Scholarship postcard?), and the "Gnaw" series is creepy and fascinating, with its notes of Victoriana and taxidermy. I would love to chat with you sometime about those and other pieces...
