|Sterling cast branches with mabe pearls|
I have many events on the horizen this spring and I am working non-stop to prepare. The first is the Celebration of the Arts at St. David's Church in Dewitt. It is a show celebrating local artists in which each artist contritutes 2 pieces for a one week gallery show - definitely worth the visit if you have time! In May I am going to a one-week intensive course in Portland, Maine to study with Kate Wolf, master wax carver. I have really wanted to fine-tune my wax carving skills for lost wax casting, and this promises to be a great opportunity. Following my trip to Portland, I will be in Lockport, NY beginning May 31 for the 100 American Craftsmen Show at the Kenan Center. This is a very selective show of fabulous artists from across the country. It's my first year participating and I am very much looking forward to it. I hope to see you there!
