Stay obsessed by what you love...........

______Days are full and as much as I try to keep order, I find less time to write about it. The seasons change and sounds of the birds in early morning make me long to show through my work how this makes me feel. I hope that my design work will bring some of that to the fore. Someone said, "Do what you know, do what you love".
I only wish.
There are many ways to put nature in the work we all do. That is my guiding inspiration and a way to leave a part of myself in this beautiful world.______

new ring...actually first ring...

Finally spent a few days in my studio nonstop....I had an urge to make a ring and since using Hadar's clay, I feel a great lack of fear when I try something new. I think it is just the feeling of having a big chunk of that wonderful silky clay that she invented. So I started and this is how it looked as an unfired piece...and finished. I cannot wait to try another. I really have had reliquaries on my mind for several years, both glass ones and polymer but I will try that in the bronze as soon as I get a few hours to really dig in.

I am so happy with the ring especially the strength of it. I was even able to put it on a mandrel and tap it larger. It was a joy to make. Hadar's Bronze clay.
