Spring shore

Spring had sprung when I looked up from my pinched pots; the hills and shores are alive.   Millie, my mother-in-law a.k.a personal florist, brought me this beautiful bouquet picked this morning from her garden and I knew exactly which vase it should sit in.

Spring is here on Orcas Island and the pace in my studio has been fevered.  I have been working on a new flock of birds that are awaiting their first firing and jewelry for the studio mixed media/ceramic line.  One project I am really excited about is a small-batch collection of tableware for a local retailer to be launched this summer.  Sneak preview soon, maybe 😉

And, very special thanks goes out to Outlook Inn on Orcas Island for featuring our very large mixed media wall piece, Collaboration I, by Christa Smith and I, in their restaurant, New Leaf Cafe – the must-do dining spot on my Orcas list for visiting family and friends.  Heading out for a walk in the spring sun now, see you on the shore!
