Favorites

 This is one of my favorite pieces for the Lark and Key show. The nest has some tiny eggs in it and it's lined with wool (thanks Anna for that!) The transfers are a pain, but this one was worth it. I love this. It's just simple and sweet.
 The "vases" are finished for the Bascom show, I just have to ship them next week. I have four different ones, all houses but with a small vase component. I like where these are going and will be making more, definitely.
and today I delivered my pieces for the NC Landscape show at the Visual Arts Exchange in Raleigh. This is always a good show, and they are now in a new and very huge gallery space, so I am excited to see the show. That's about it for right now. I have plenty of work out there, so get and buy some of it!!
There won't be any more made until late June or early July, I'm taking a break! Not from blogging, just from house building!

I like how the shape of the house varies and how you're using that shape to accentuate the object. They're playing off each other nicely.

Thanks Shannon, they are a constant evolution, that's for sure! Becoming more of a canvas than the object of intention....

Brilliant! All of them. Just brilliant.
