This website still has not yet been "officially launched"... It hasn't even really been designed (which, as an artist, really gets to me)... But the links do take you to working, if just preliminary, pages:

      A little bit of shopping (monthly features listed here)
      but not a full-scale show....

      A chance for students to get some more practice
      (metal choices described here), but not an actual class...

      I would like to offer these every Second Saturday from 12 Noon to 5 pm!
      But due to other, overlapping events whose timing is out of my control,
      there are dates when I will have to move the hours or switch the date.
      My current estimate of dates & times is given above, but
      more information is now availble on my Studio Sessions page
      and may be updated there (or on my blog or Facebook page ...)
      before I get back to updating this page!

    • Until I've arranged for a collection of favorites & explorations here,
      please feel free to browse my online photo galleries at:
      • Picasa,
        except, the absolutely wonderful Picasa is no more,
        but you can still find many small images from there on my blog, or
      • Flickr I,
        except, though you CAN still see a few older images there,
        for some reason, I can no longer get into that to update it, so
      • Flickr II
        which is where I've been putting photos until I can find a better site
        (they do display well on Flickr, but I find its user-interface
        far too awkaward for regular use, by me or by you...).
      • Sigh...

And, do check out my blog where I write (for my students and fellow artists) about working with metal clay (and more!).

I've been busy making adornments, not playing on the 'net.
What's here now are (still) just preliminary notes and quick snapshots.

If you've known about this site for a while, you will know that I have
regular fantasies about really spending some time fixing it up. You are
welcome to let me know if you'd like to be notified when this site is
officially launched. In the (likely loooong) meantime, please do check
my blog which I do try to update every week or two.
