Studio Tour

I have been cleaning and reorganizing all week to make my studio more hospitable to visitors.  On October 3 and 4, my studio will be open along with many others in Skaneateles as a fund raiser for SKARTS.  This is your chance to get a glimpse of how and where we work.

Private Lessons-Part 2

I worked with a wonderful woman yesterday who wanted to learn how to use the images from the lowly bottle cap.  I showed her how to pull the plastic liner out, flatten the bottle cap, trim it, sand the edges and to punch a circle in it. We stayed cool by working in my basement studio.  A fun and productive afternoon.  She intends to use these bottle cap images for a piece of assemblage art.  She told me that she is being drawn more and more to metal.  Not a bad thing, in my opinion!
