rock, scissors, paperweights



Okay, I know that's not exactly how it goes, but it seems to fit my latest art project. I used terra cotta clay and majolica glaze to make the pieces that I attached to river rocks; an idea that's been floating around in my head for a while and finally came out. I like how the shiny glaze contrasts with the smooth, natural rock. And, I have a thing about paperweights and other old-fashioned desk and writing accessories. The finer things from another era.

Mary - I just found your blog today, and I have to tell you, I'm utterly captivated! Your pieces are so beautiful! I'm going to go out on a limb and ask if you'd consider setting up a booth at our second annual "Share the Harvest" Fall Gift Market here at my farm, on October 15. I'm near Plano, TX, a bit of a drive... but we had a very nice turnout last year - it might be worth your while. My photos from last year are here (http://www.flickr.com/photos/21587744@N02/sets/72157625184482186/) If you'd consider it, I'd love to give you more details. ctelisak at juno dot com. At the very least, I'll be following your lovely blog to keep up with your art and activities. God bless...
