Shopportunity Knocks!

this weekend... up at Lowell Artworks in Everett!
Setting up things for Christmas!
with great artists like Staci...
and Shelly...
When business was slow, I would write Christmas Haiku like this... Making my tassels... Stacy cutting up yarn Shelly is laughing

Another Christmas A single sound that ruins the day That McCartney song...

Slow but steady...

Spirit Dancers... I haven't done these in several years and I realized I miss them... stay tuned

Making the best of a cold, cold day...


Harmonic Convergence

Today Seattle was kind of shut down. What other cities would call a light snowfall, Seattle is referring to as "Snowmageddon". I would have thought Northwesterners were made of sterner stuff. Guess not!

Tomorrow I'll be roughing out the clay on the armatures here and then, as the week goes on , I'll be moving between finishing them off and working on about a dozen wall pieces. I'll get them all done and ready to ship out after thanksgiving. That'll give them two weeks to get down to Austin in plenty of time for the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar... I'll post more shots of these guys tomorrow.

In the meantime... here's the Sea King 2.0!

He's a revision of a piece I did earlier this summer. Originally, he was attached to a big hammered copper thingy. Luckily, the piece fell and he popped off and shattered. When I gathered the fragments up, I realized I liked him better the way he was. I ditc…
