Clay Pebble Bowls

Here are some more photos of my students' colorful bowls from the Winter EC art show, if you'd like to see. They turned out really great, I think.

Little Miss Maya

On our way back from Wisconsin, we stopped in Bloomington for a couple days to spend some holiday time with Eli's Family. As usual, I took a lot of photos of Maya and not much else.
I shall title this one: Maya puts Mama down for a nap.
Her "ha" (hat) was very exciting to take n and off.
We also got to see Michal and Frank's new gigantic studio space they built on their land. It will be a wood shop, a metalsmith shop, a gallery, a glass studio, and a photo studio. Did I mention how huge it is? This room is going to be the metalsmith shop:
The wood shop will be the front room of the building. Frank already brought in a lot of his fancy wood:
We also got to check out the downtown area of Bloomington, which we never managed to make time for on previous visits.

Wrapped Twig

Eli made me this necklace out of a twig he wrapped in gold thread. Isn't it pretty? I think he should make a bunch and sell them.

A Few Days in Madison

Eli and I travelled to Wisconsin for a few days over the holidays. It was -14 degrees, but I have to admit the freshly fallen snow was beautiful.
 We even bought ourselves some Badger gear to show our spirit.
We got to see Adam and take unflattering photos.
Lily acted adorable.
I found another reason to be impressed with Wyn - his long-term puzzle attention span.
 
 We ate a lot, and pre-celebrated my birthday with Aunt Mary and Uncle Dean.
Here is my mom-made cake:
And then we headed to Indiana. More photos soon...

Client Art Exhibit Time!


The past couple weeks have been crazy with gathering release forms, collecting art, and finding creative/cheap/landlord-approved ways to display it in our space. We are especially excited about the Community Portrait Quilt, which is basically a huge wall of self portraits from each EC student we serve. I hope lots of families come - the kids are always so proud to see their work in a "gallery"...
