Is It Time To Buy A Spring Hat Yet?

Here's my version of 'Mother Goose' … with straw hat and necklace. Have been playing around with some more fun sculptured shapes and thought Nursery Rhymes and poems would be a good place to start. Attempts have been both super, and not so super - but that's part of the fun!

Abstract Sun/Winter Tree

Here's a different take on a winter tree … abstract sunrise in the background. Might need a little tweaking, but I might be on to something - we'll see how the next one looks. Any feedback appreciated!

Just in time for Valentine's Day, these puffy little hearts are sure to bring some smiles. Made using all sterling silver components and a Swarovski crystal atop each one for just a touch of that additional sparkle and bling.

The Circus Came to Town Today

Have been trying to do this little elephant for the longest time, and I'm so pleased with the way he looks. Maaaaybeeee needs a little tweaking here or there, but over all he's just about the cutest thing to come out of the kiln today. Lots of critters today, but this one is by far my fav. Elephant walk people !!!

Introducing the Speckled Sapsucker

This zany little bird is certainly one of a kind. But she is so cool. Stacked as a totem of sorts, she's gathering all the good omens for the day. She might be one of a kind right now, but I think I'll be making another pretty soon.

Slithery Spotted Snake

A different twist on something I made about 10 years ago … but way cuter. Lots of lovable looks in this little slithery snake. Wonder how far he'll get with those crossed eyes?

A different take on 'trees' … there's a bunch of 'em! and I like it! Also, I like the rich blue colors in the sky brought by using a new frit blend found while attending the ISGB convention in Houston this past summer. I learned almost too much to absorb and picked up some new tools and colors of glass to try, it's been exciting experimenting. Spring shows start soon, hope to see a lot of friends this year. New shows and different show schedule posted, so ... keep up!

Spring Tree

Another tree for the springtime … always more trees. The Spring shows start soon - there will always be trees presented, and this year some paintings will be introduced - that's gonna be scary. We'll see how that goes. But rest assured, there will always be trees with me, a favorite to make and to share.

New Heart for a New Year

A new heart for the new year - lots of color and movement. Ivory, turquoise, black and a random carmel color I found on my table. A pretty good end result, I think. Only one, so once the Spring shows begin, I don't think it will be around long...

"Here, Boy!"

This cute little fluff ball is a new doggie version made with multi colored DH glass giving a soft and mottled look to this pooch. A tiny love heart is on the front and back, and if you'll notice, a sterling fire hydrant is at the bottom. Only one of these, so once the Spring shows start, he won't last long.
