Talented Students

I just had to post this image. Today I received a BEAUTIFUL gift from a student (and new friend). It is the black and white pendant shown in the top row of the gallery of images. The pendant was made by a very talented artist and designer Shana Zingman of Zing Thing Studios.

If you are interested in beautiful glass jewelry or graphic design visit Shana's website.

The Rumbling Volcano

A volcano... really? Has my life really become a soap opera? My work will be part of an exhibition at SDC Gallery in London beginning on May 5 "God willing and the creeks don't rise" or should I say "God willing and the volcano stops spewing".

This piece is called Grow and it is approximately 13 inches high, ceramic with underglazes, oxides and stains. So if you are in London from May 5- August 7, 2010 stop by the gallery and see some of my work.

It's been a rough week because my mother died last Sunday. My brother Bob and I drove up to Gainesville Sunday morning and got to be with her as she died.

This photo was taken last fall at my birthday party and shows Bob, mom, and me. I have kept photos like this very close at hand this week to help remember the good times. Live while you are alive and do whatever you can to be happy. I love you mom.
