Baby Birds

Baby Birds

I'm really excited about these new birdie guys  I've been making. They are carved from aspen with wings made from reclaimed wood. The Baby Birds are just the right size to use as a holiday ornament or they can hang in a window year round. The Skatebirds are much larger and have recycled caster wheels for feet and found glass knobs as crests.  I am on a hunt for more reclaimed wood with just the right patterns. Old yardsticks and vintage crates are my favorites right now...

Tiny Treasures

Oh my blogski how I've missed you. So many things are going on in my little world at this time of year. In October I spent a week in the mountains collecting aspen. It was lovely and relaxing and my drying room is now filled to the brim with aspen for future sculptures. I got back from that trip just in time to finish up some new pieces and beautify my studio for my annual open house.  Last week I sent out a collection of art goodies to Mary Lou Zeek Gallery in Salem, Oregon. I love that gallery and am  always honored when they invite me to show. And last but not least, I've just added some new tiny treasures in my Etsy Shop. Here's a  a peek!
