The Eyes Have It

Fall is in the air, and I am loving it.  It’s the crisp air and sweet smells of rain, leaves just starting to change colors, the peacefulness of it all.  I have been sculpting in my studio every moment I get these past several weeks, finding myself lost in thought as the faces emerge, drawn in by their eyes, and enjoying the way the tiniest change in the shape of the lid or depth and color of the glass can alter their expression.

Out of my studio have come several mini busts with handmade glass eyes, several figures with clay upper bodies and found objects (many of which have not emerged finished from the studio quite yet), and a couple of larger figures as well.  Several of these new figures are listed on my etsy site, with more in the weeks to come.

I have been inspired to embark on another adventure as well:  the Sunday Artisan Market at Kerrytown.  Hosted by MICE (Michigan Indie Crafters of Etsy), I will be at the market on Sunday, September 27th.  Come by to see me and a lot of other wonderful local artists!  I hope that these last days of summer are good to you all!
