A New Year!

Just returned from a teaching trip to New Zealand.  I cannot believe it is nearly March and I have not posted anything on my webpage! My plan for this year is to have a quieter year with no Studio teaching from my home studio and much reduced  technology time so you won’t hear from me quite so much! I will be focusing on making.. So here are some  images from pieces I made late last year-hold mouse over for description.Enjoy! The first image is inspired by Pam de Groot and a class I hosted in my studio with her.Brooches were inspired by Lisa Klakulak.

Jorie and some of her beautiful work!

The class theme will relate to felt as art objects and we will explore color, layering, thickness/thinness, tails, reserve design, and the class will be open  on any points that you want to present. Jorie has asked us to  bring examples of small pieces which inspire us or a motif  we recognize as something that comes up often in our work.
