Just a few decorative trays with autumn wildflower photos from the Panhandle Trail help to celebrate autumn. The larger tray is 10 x 14 and the smaller tray is 8 x 12, and made of lightweight unfinished wood. I paint the outside and inside, then adhere a print of the image on my high quality […]

A Pantherish Cabochon

Giuseppe is a housepanther, but he does have a rather real pantherish profile.  This small pendant is made with a print of a detail of my photo “Watching the World” . We all love my studio window, a big, old, battered metal-framed casement about 4′ x 4′ on the second floor looking out at the […]

Are You An Ailurobibliophile?

I’m working out a design I’ve had in mind for a while—since just about a year ago to be exact! This was to be September 2017’s new introduction, starting with a tote bag then possibly moving to other things, and the concept would lead to a line of items with this design and others, using […]

Trees of the Trail Coasters

“Trees of the Trail” coasters are made from terra cotta polymer clay with the imprint of a real leaf that’s from some of the more populous tree species growing on the trail: sycamore, oak, maple and beech. In fact, the sycamore leaf is from the sycamore tree I sketched in “Sycamore Moon” and the maple […]

Hot Off the Worktable: Trees of the Trail Coasters

“Trees of the Trail” coasters, terra cotta polymer clay with the imprint of a real leaf that’s from one of the trees growing on the trail—in fact, the sycamore leaf is from the sycamore tree I sketched in “Sycamore Moon” and the maple leaf is from the tree that holds “The Rope Swing“. I roll […]

Wildflowers and Butterflies of the Trail Cabochon Pendants

A few cabochon pendants featuring wildflowers and a butterfly from the Panhandle Trail—daisy, chicory, woodland sunflower, aster and a great spangled fritillary butterfly on milkweed. I made these pendants with the last batch just before my open house in July, knowing I also had my Panhandle Trail exhibit coming up, so they’re not really “hot […]

Hot Off the Worktable: Set of Seven Keepsakes Inspired By Nature

Wildflowers, butterflies, seasonal art, muddy spring days, hot summer afternoons, crisp autumn mornings and quiet winter dusks, a set of seven cube-shaped keepsake boxes. Nature is so full of color and beauty I hardly know where to start or finish. Each box has five images, one on the top and each side, and is trimmed […]
