Good morning and Happy Valentine’s Day. I wanted to give you a quick update with what is going on in the studio. You know that I am a busy Mom so I have to squeeze my work in between running the kids around and cooking dinner. I’ve been trying out some new designs using the terra sigilatta and carving technique (sgrafitto) in a slightly different way. I promised some photos so let’s see how this upload goes. I mentioned that I’m a bit rusty. You’ll notice that I am staring to explore some ancient designs. I do love the ancient ones and now that I’ve explored many cultures, it seemed fitting to go on to my own family roots. I have much to research so I will let you know what I am reading. I always have an interest in the esoteric and of course, death in terms of social, religious, and spiritual symbolism continues to fascinate me. You will see more of this in my work to come as i’ve only begun to scratch the surface (ha!) literally.
