Sabbatical

I’m enjoying some time away from the heat and hustle of St Loius to stretch my creative wings a bit on the west coast. I’ve been in Portland for a week and anticipate another week or so here before heading to San Francisco. I very purposefully left all my jewelry tools in STL with the intention of working in some other modalities that have interested me for some time now. So far, I’ve been pretty immersed in teaching myself shibori dyeing and yesterday afternoon I wrapped a piece of white rayon up in some steel and set it to oxidizing, with the intent of over dyeing the results in my indigo vat. I’m pretty tickled with how most everything has come out so far! Keep an eye out for some of these alongside my jewelry at Strange Folk Festival!

Works From the Studios

Just got notice that two of my recent pieces have been accepted into the Works From the Studios exhibition at the Craft Alliance gallery in St. Louis, on display from 6/27-8/10 at the Delmar Loop gallery. Super humbled and excited!!! Stay tuned for info about the opening reception!

Surface

Spent the evening experimenting with three surface treatments for the new batch of Alice blanks. Excited to form these in the new press when it arrives later this week!
