I’ve spent the summer experimenting and putting the final touches on new designs. The glass trees were a huge hit last year and I had many people tell me that they wanted to create a “forest” so I will have a few new styles/sizes to add in the mix.

I have also created a ornament for this year using discarded retail glass shelving.

It’s time for the Spring Exhibit at The Log Cabin Gallery in Peninsula! I will have mini trees, mobiles and wall art available. On Mat 18th I will be there all day so stop by.
I’m very happy to once again be a part of the Spring Portage Trail Barn Sale. I will have a selection of new Spring mini trees and mobiles available.
I like the way the light and shadows play on this piece.

I wanted to get an outdoor photo, but the sun was not cooperating. It has 7 pieces of kiln fired recycled glass on copper/galvanized wire and measures approximately 10″ tall (not including the hanging wire) and 9″ wide. More colors are in the works.
I had such a wonderful reaction from my series of triangle shaped trees this past fall and winter that I spent time playing with new shapes and creating test molds. The roundness and almost cartoon like shapes make me think of spring which is welcomed after the -20 degree weather last week. I added a mini triangle tree to the photographs for comparison. More shapes and colors to come.
After a great harvesting day at zerolandfill last week, I have been working on new shapes and ideas inspired by the few days of cool weather we had. New pieces will debut at Made in Ohio at Hale Farm and Village on August 31.

I scored more out dated wallpaper samples a few weeks ago at Zerolandfill Akron and decided to play around with some new shapes and dimension. I was looking through some photos I took over the summer and was inspired by fungus on a tree. This was one of the days that I wish I had left one wall in my house white. Maybe that will be a spring project.
