"Here are some photos of new and exciting additions to my normal Suspended Stone Design collection. This is the only time of year to find both the elegant simple suspended stones, as well as the more creative fanciful pieces that I save just for Vashon. I save my favorite stones for this time of year. Waterworks is the best place to come choose your own stone or gifts for your loved ones." suspendedstonedesign.com

Copper, torch-fired enamel, fired ceramic and found objects are what I use to create these figurative pieces below. I have a love of the house form too and am creating a multitude of small copper houses for this December Tour. At the very bottom is a studio shot of ceramics in process.

I have always loved geography and maps. Several years ago I began to collect discarded maps and atlases. The colors, designs, and images are beautiful, especially in the older maps - cartographers are great artists! I’ve only just begun to experiment with different ways to use maps and vintage photos in my art.
