Are you inspired when the weather is beautiful? I am!! Whether cold or hot, as long as the sky is blue and the sun is out, I feel energized, uplifted and happy. Who isn't?! More of my beads to show you -
CAN'T LET GO, close-up
I love these beads, the motifs are quite Japanese-looking
THE ORACLE AT DELPHI, close-up
Made with lemon meringue and black. I can't tell you how I oh-so-cannot control this glass (lemon meringue), I keep getting splotches of deeper yellow - I admit, I do like the unexpected splotches, it's an element of surprise each time I take out the beads from the kiln when I use this glass.
DRAGONFLIES, FLOWERS AND ME, close-up
Inspired while swimming in a nearby freshwater lake. I observed beautiful iridescent blue-bodied dragonflies flittering among the reeds.
Newsflash: Arizona Society of Glass Beadmakers (ASGB) is sponsoring and organizing my workshops in 2011. I am teaching in Arizona, two two-day classes on April 30/May 1 and May 3/4. If anyone is interested in taking the classes, please contact Penny Dickinson. By the way, when the classes fill up and there is enough demand, a possible third class shall open up. I shall be teaching techniques in these workshops and we shall be working with soft glass. For more details of what I shall be teaching, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
