I am so excited to let you all know that in addition to my jewelry I will also be selling my porcelain vessels at The Clay Studio Shop. I am honored to have my work displayed among so many other talented artists. The Clay Studio is a great institution that has been supportive of many novice artists, me included. So please stop by and enjoy!

I spent an amazing two weeks at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts on Deer Isle in Maine studying mold making with Benjamin Schulman. Experimenting with rubber and plaster molds I had the opportunity to cast with clay, resin and chocolate. I have come to realize that mold making is an art of its own. The process is much more time intensive than I had envisioned, however the possibilities that molds provide make it all worth it. I see a lot of potential for integrating molds into my work. Who knows this might be the beginning of a whole new journey...
During these two weeks I have also fallen in love with polaroids. Somehow they are able to capture the essence of a moment better than any other picture.
This announcement is coming about a month too late, but I wanted to post it none the less since it is a big accomplishment for me. My piece, Off Circle, was in The Clay Studio Member's Exhibition. The show was juried by Steve Lee, Director of the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, MT. I was very excited to have my piece exhibited among so many other talented artists' work.
The Member's exhibition was on display at The Clay Studio from June 6 - June 29, 2008
