This is a new endeavor for me but something I have been gravitating to. My mum used to dapple in clay sculpture back in the 70's and still has the pieces around the house. I decided to start with pinch pots and plates and experiment with different sanding and painting techniques. I hope to have these available on my site by summer!
I am working on re-designing my entire website and making collage works, wovens, pottery pieces and watercolor stationery. It is a huge undertaking but I am confident I can pull everything together! I have been very inspired lately and eager to get this off the ground.
I went to the Berkeley Lawrence Hall of Science and well, it pretty much sucks! This was the highlight in the colossal squid exhibit. They are pictures of a very small squids eye and beak. As a major squid fan it was cool to see the exhibit but the place is really run down and in need of a complete overhaul.

The 27th annual show at the De Young featured the work of 150 prominent Bay Area designers and flower clubs. It was wonderful to see the interpretation of the art works and how beautifully they translated their vision with flowers. We enjoyed jazz music and a nice glass of white wine as we jostled among the many visitors.

I made this collage for my colleague. It is a birthday present she plans to give her husband. It was really a fun challenge tweeking my usual process with a specific person in mind. The most enjoyable aspect is creating the overall feel and mood of the collage. I look forward to more commission pieces in the future!

Today Morgwn, Melissa and I went for lunch at Summer Kitchen on College. It was yummy! I had the chicken sandwich again, Melissa had the egg salad sandwich and Morgwn had the house made sausage pizza. We then went to the farmers market in Berkeley for dinner supplies including gem lettuce, beets, blue bottle coffee and river dog eggs.
