Another great holiday show! I exhibited at the Women’s Festival of Crafts at City Hall in Burlington, November 24 and 25.
New Work: 2012
It was a great show – I took my pottery and nuno felt scarves to the Vermont Hand Crafters’ annual Craft Vermont holiday show at the Sheraton Conference Center in Burlington.
A new theme for late summer in Vermont – dragonflies! They’re everywhere, inspiring a series of plates, platters, tiles and bowls.
Or maybe they’re trivets. In any case, I was asked to make some bathroom tiles this summer and it started me on a flurry of tile making. They’ve been mounted on walls, propped up on shelves, and it also turns out that they make fabulous trivets.
I’ve gone exotic in the late summer – peacocks!
It’s been hot and dry…so I’m thinking of water.
It’s summer, and they’re back on Vermont’s lakes and rivers – herons!
A late winter project – monumental vases! I spent the early months of 2012 making vases as large as the kiln would allow – a fun way to pass the coldest months.
The giant vase of grasses was followed this winter by the more giant vase of chickadees and owl – my attempt to capture an interaction witnessed in my own backyard between a napping barred owl and a daring flock of chickadees.
