Snow Surprise!

It was supposed to rain all weekend, but here I sit by the fire on Sunday morning and the snow that started yesterday is still falling.  It's not a big storm -- last night there were only about two inches on the ground -- but it's one of those magical sticky snows that coat everything in a lovely white exoskeleton. 

So, Griffin and I had to take a walk in the woods yesterday!

 Griffin offered to go first under that branch weighted down with heavy, wet snow.  Kind boy!

  He ended up with a load of snow down the back of his collar.

We had a lovely, if wet, walk with plenty of photos:
Happy snow day, everyone!

Last pieces before the semester begins...

Here are the other two pieces of glasswork I was able to finish during semester break.  The window is for sale at Artisan's Way in Concord, MA.  The lamp is staying with me for a while, though I may sell it through Five Crows in Natick, MA after a month or two (sometimes I have to live with a piece before I can let go).

Now I'm off to get buried in course-prep and research on domestic space :)

I had to post the picture with the sun coming through in stripes!  Love it.

A New Window for the New Year

I've been back in the studio for a little creativity before the semester starts.  There are several pieces but only one is ready for viewing (actually, they are all grouted but I finished two of them after dark and couldn't photograph them properly).  So here is a picture of the window that I completed before the sun set:

This piece is 3' by 2.5' and looks wonderful in my front window -- though I will be selling it through Artisan's Way in Concord, MA (in case you like it). I will have to live with it for a while, though -- it's so hard to let them go at first!
I've got another window and a lamp to finish up this week. I'll post pictures when they're done.
Happy new year to all.
