Last night was a roam the house night, which doesn’t really work, as there are only 5 rooms and the hardwood floor creaks. So, last night became a sketch the dirty dishes on the counter night (I was desperate).

Needless to say, Sleep is the only thing on my mind in the studio today. The result is a set made in honor of my evanescent goddess, a ¾” piece of recycled sterling silver, the front buffed to a shine, and one edge a delightful uneven cut oxidized to a smoky grey. A contrast of our (occasionally) lucid state, and the subconscious beyond…

home again

Hello, all--I'm finally back and unpacked! Italy was absolutely everything I hoped it would be and more. I would love to go back...soon. I don't have my pictures online yet, but will post them when I get around to sorting and labeling. The above photo is at the Villa d'Este in Tivoli, where we wandered through water gardens and rooms filled with frescoes.

I came home to piles of work and to-dos that should have been finished before I left, but that is just how my world is. One fantastically fun to-do was to harvest my giant heirloom Oregon Applegate garlic and hang them to cure. Aren't they beautiful?

Now it's back to the studio for me!
