There’s nothing like a deadline to inspire artistic production! Of course, I have known about this deadline for quite a while, and have been working steadily all along. Here’s a little sampling of what will be available at the Artist’s Market at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts on Friday, November 21 (5:30-8 PM) and Saturday, November 22 (10 AM – 4 PM).
New porcelain asparagus serving ware, new porcelain ice cream and baby bowls, new very colorful and blingy fused glass pendants, and new hand-printed cards made with my own hand-cut stamps and hand-painted with gouache. When it comes to clay, most people think of me as a “tile” person, but making bowls and functional dinnerware is one of my favorite things to do.
I’m a firm believer in showing respect by giving something real to children. If you know (or are) someone with a small child, consider commissioning a special baby bowl that is cute, but not “cutesy.” I’ll personalize the bowl with the full name of the recipient(s) making a full circle around the inside.
