The Heart of the Matter

I made a series of wine corks in stands for Guardino Gallery's "The Heart of the Matter" show which opens this Thursday! There's a limited number available, so get them while you can. Alberta Street has two great wine shops as well, so you can make it a quickie shopping experience for your valentine.

Also on display at Guardino will be my lovebugs!

The group show will also include blown glass, etchings, mixed media, clay & carved wood and presented in a variety of forms: from prints to tin hearts that hang on the wall and convert to pins; from steel cut hearts to hand carved wood & mixed media by 13 different Portland artists.

IN THE WINDOW & FEATURE AREA at Guardino Gallery through Feb 22, 2009.
Opening Reception on January 29, from 6-9 PM
2939 NE Alberta Street, Portland, OR 97211 503-281-9048

A young bunny in training!

Last fall I was approached by a high school student who had chosen the Bunnywood Show at the Museum of Contemporary Craft for a school project. The assignment was to write a report about the work and recreate part of it in order to better understand it. I invited her over the studio for a visit while I was working on the window at Guardino Gallery and she and her mom got to ask questions and see how I put together my window displays. Above is a picture of the section of Bunnywood she chose in the actual show, and below is her recreation in self-hardening clay. Great job, Rachel!!


work I like

Got a nice email from another Etsy artist who works under the name "Gilhooly." These are two pieces I think are very special, a found object airplane and a cute little bird toy. Click here to visit her Etsy site and see more work by this artist.
