It has been a most splendid fall here in Maine and what an opportunity to revel in color and nature! The woods have been teaming with mushrooms and incredible colors. These always have a way of finding their way into my work. In addition to all the wonderful fall colors I have worked with, my palette choice has lately turned to reds. I have really enjoyed exploring this crazy color. Especially interesting to me is pairing cool-ish reds with yellow-ish greens. My reds have been so bright that it has been difficult to photograph them!
Of course I will still be offering a wide range of colors and shapes to choose from. Something for absolutely everyone!
Clip-ons and Posts Available You asked for them and now they're here. I have a limited but nice selection of clip-on earrings and post style earrings. The clip-ons have a very good quality silver plated clip. I had hoped to go with solid sterling silver but the cost was prohibitive. The post earrings are surgical steel. All findings are soundly embedded into the clay to ensure there is no future glue failure.
November will be a busy month here. To finish out 2010 I have a show every weekend. Hope you will stop by one of these wonderful shows and have a look at my tempting new pieces!
