2013 Fundraiser: Sustain Local Art & Cuisine – February 2013

You’ll hear me talk a lot about Sawdust. It is certainly my extended family,
now that my Mom is gone. We’re having a fundraiser in March to raise cash to
make a movie about us, the Sawdust… Definitely watch out for that one!!
In February I made/donated 60 cups for the dinner, 10 different color patterns, using a
post-dip process that I learned with my first Master, John Barber.tumbler bluegreentumbler

Sawdust Art Festival Winter Fantasy – November 2012

 photo-14 photo-13

The Sawdust Art Festival is open for the months of July and August. In November and December we have what is called Winter Fantasy for the five weekends leading up to Christmas.  My booth became “Angel Headquarters.”  This year I built my booth without walls so that I could ask the kids to fill the open spaces with their Christmas wishes. Some of them were priceless!
