Visiting my mom in North Dakota. She gave me back this brooch that I gave to her in the late 70's . I cannot believe how much it reminds me of my current work. You never know what lingers in the subconscious.

Increased scale !

Holding breathe.  Increased scale of this wall tile for a commission. Nervous about getting it safely into the kiln.
The commission is for a women's unit in a Chicago hospital.  They have ordered five of my new wall pieces
One down , four to go#

My first peony of the season. I love this time of year when I can have garden flowers for my vases.
