West Comes East



Dropped off some new ceramic pieces today at the Artful Deposit in anticipation of their upcoming West Comes East exhibit which runs from May 1st - June 6th 2010 — Opening Reception Saturday May 1st from 6-9 pm. One of the new pieces is this very large 16" handcarved slab formed bowl which I love...It reminds me of the patina on aged copper...I will be experimenting more with this glaze and color variations of it....Also next week I should be bringing in some clay paintings in as well...

Allentown Garden Club Gala


Finally, spring is here and my hands are at conflict whether to play with the earth outside or in the studio...it is a good fight to have after the rain...

Please stop in and join me Saturday April 10th from 5-7 for a wine and cheese reception at Necessities for the Heart in Allentown New Jersey.

This spring, I donated an original 24" x 30" oil painting of an Iris germanica, "Sweeter Than Wine"..as a fund raiser for the Allentown Garden Club.  During the social, the painting will be on display and available for purchase.

It promises to be a wonderfully attended event, with Gardeners from all over the tri-state area.  Please be sure to attend.

Date:  April 10th, Saturday
