Today's Quote

I couldn't say it better myself:"I am often asked, 'Don't you hate to see things leave your studio?' Well, no, I don't hate it. I make my living from letting things go. You just hope, if you make things as I do, that they can make their way in the world and have some longevity." - Edward deWaal, from The Hare with Amber Eyes

Opening in Guild School Class

My Victorian Cottage class for the IGMA Guild School was full, but unfortunately, it turns out that one of the students can't come to Castine this year. This means that as of this afternoon, one spot in the class is again availble. If you've ever thought of treating yourself to the fabulous Guild School experience, and would like to take the class, we would love to have you join us!

The web site I have been promising for some time is finally under construction, and will be up and running shortly. It will have information about me, a gallery of past work and items available for immediate sale.

I will post the url here as soon as it is ready for visitors. Check back for further developments!

Pumpkin Patch

This fall themed walnut house sold at the Philadelphia Miniaturia show in November. I've waited to put pictures up because it was to be a surprise Christmas present.

HO and N scale molded plants are becoming available - a great resource for those of us who work in small scales, though they take quite a bit of tweaking in order to look natural. They are molded in very bright colors, so they need repainting, as well. When I saw the pumpkins, I couldn't resist using them with a walnut house; it seemed like the perfect combination!

The cozy interior includes two tiny cats on an ottoman by Sylvia Mobley.
