Simon Says

And so, do we do what Simon says or do we choose our own paths? Here, I'm using a child's game as a symbolic "big brother" - and, by now you've probably guessed that I march to a different drummer.....

Swiss Cheese Memory

I don't know about you, but sometimes I feel like I have a giant head full of memories that elude me. Oh yes, they're all still there somewhere - but retrieving them is another matter all together.....

Cupid's Evil Twin

Dear Heart

I've often heard this word duo uttered when someone is being extra kind or sweet. My granny used to say it to me and this is what I imagined (and still imagine).....

I know I haven't been very active with this blog lately....and it's not because I haven't been working and creating! It's just that I've been working out a lot of new ideas and glazes. Lately, I've been spending a lot of time on stains and the possibilities are endless. Of course, the technical aspects are alway something I must tackle "head on"!

Into the Mystic

I like the idea of sailing off into the Mystic - with dreams swirling about and endless possibilities. Sometimes, it seems as if so much is hidden from us and yet, many times, a closer look can reveal what we never knew existed....

The size of my little "explorer" is 2 1/2" high by 2 1/8" wide and there is a tube affixed to the back for hanging as a pendant or on the wall.
