Halloween and Vine

I've been working on this show for many weeks. This year I'm bringing two 'Stages', boxes made from clay with a painted background, and hand built components. The title of this one is 'I Like Fall.' I'm driving up next Friday, and plan on listening to tapes which will have me fluent in Italian by the time I arrive in Petaluma, or at least able to order Pappa A Pomodoro and a bottle of Barolo for two. Hope to see you at this wonderful show.

Story Platters.

Not all wares are functional. Some tell stories. This farm woman has just located her best laying hen, and is about to take her back to the henhouse. Size on this platter is about 14 inches wide and 10 inches in height.

About me

I live in a small town, where wild deer gnaw at my Cecile Brunner rose bushes and the fog hurls in ghostlike from the Pacific, then suddenly withdraws just as quietly. There are twelve steps to the studio from my front door. No matter that it's stuck on the end of the house, a former laundry room about the size of a dove cote. It's lined with plenty of windows and my cup of coffee is still hot by the time I arrive inside.
