Come join me "upstairs" from the Studio, a place to relax and talk with friends. Here you'll find clips of my stuff, woolgathering about the animals in the family, news about shows and events and links to other sites that I find too good not to mention. Pull up a cushion and have some cake( there should always be cake) and tea, and lets discuss the amazing world of Art in it's many forms!

Poetic thought

Windy Nights
by Robert Louis Stevenson

Whenever the moon and stars are set,
Whenever the wind is high,
All night long in the dark and wet,
A man goes riding by.
Late in the night when the fires are out,
Why does he gallop and gallop about?

Whenever the trees are crying aloud,
And ships are tossed at sea,
By, on the highway, low and loud,
By at the gallop goes he.
By at the gallop he goes, and then
By he comes back at the gallop again.

Sticky Witch

It's one of those Halloween mysteries; how she got this way, or what spell she might use to unstick herself from this goo. For now, she's going to need some dry frogs...

Sweet Witch has flown in just in time for Halloween

The first of the 2010 Witches Coven has made her debut. Sweet Witch is complete and ready to move on. I love the way she turned out, never exactly the way I pictured, but that's the fun of it! 

She's a bit of a glut with her all day sucker in one hand, a slice of chocolate cake in the other and a hat full of Tootsie rolls at her feet. Still, she looks very pleased with herself, and proud to be the first of the bunch to make it to Etsy.


Sticky Witch is right behind her in production, but declined WIP photo ops.

Completed Rumplestiltzkin!

 Rumplestiltzkin was completed before deadline and will be listed on Etsy soon. He is about 30" tall, wearing a silver gray tunic with red and gold trim, dark blue leggings, red cap with a peak, and black felt shoes with wooden soles. His hair is thin and wispy greyish wool and he has a straggly little goatee. In his hand he holds an ivory and gold rattle trimmed with small silver bells, intended to entice the Princess's baby, which he is sure will soon be his.

He is a complex little man, definitely a strong presence in the Studio, and I feel he watches every move I make as if wondering what's in it for him...
