I am apparently not a very prolific writer, when it comes to a blog... It's been since May of 2009 that I've written anything. In the mean time, I've rented a studio space to work in, & I've been producing much more intricate & involve pieces. It's been a very good two years... :-) Right now I'm working on a new piece. It is conceptual in nature. A pyramid,covered with hammered copper sheeting. There is a lense in one side, for viewing the interior. I will be posting once it's…Continue

For the past few years I have been involved with a wonderful place - Hypatia-in-the-Woods - - located on Hammersley Inlet, in the lower Puget Sound, near Shelton, WA. This place has been built with love and devotion by Elspeth Pope and a cadre of dedicated friends and members. Holly House - a retreat for women artists, craftswomen, poets, writers, musicians, dancers - is nestled among soaring cedars, douglas firs, and native shrubs. It shelters women seeking a quiet refuge for themselves and…Continue

It's ironic that as the world becomes increasingly digital, as books move toward the e-publishing sphere, the art of handmade books has made a resurgence. I think people today are longing for craft and beauty, for something they can touch and hold, that comes from the hands and heart of another person; something that seems a good distance away from a machine.…Continue

I kept at it though... what is this thing, this object that has so changed the entire direction of humanity?
Finally it started to come. The book as an object, a technology, a work…Continue
