Out of the Fire Sculpture Studio

I am still trying to find a balance between creating art and marketing--even posting to this blog on a regular basis gets pushed aside.  I wish it weren't so--it's a lot of fun to chronicle activities in the studio and at shows.   Even though the comments are few and far between, several people have written me, so I know there are lurkers out there.


The posts also have been image-poor--it's a bit of a process (long story), so I don't post as many photos these days as I'd like.  

Anyway, thought you'd like to see a couple more images of the studio.  Earlier posts showed a teacher workshop in session, and how full every horizontal surface can become before a show.

Here is the studio before the Carolina Designer Craftsmen Show--I repainted door panels and pedestals.  There are other pedestals to the left and several short ones below that did not get included in the photo.  Preparing for a show can be a lot of work--and that's for the non-art stuff!

A sea of white

And here is the outside of the studio, decked out for the holidays.  Photo taken Dec. 14, 2009.

Out of the Fire Sculpture Studio

As I write this, the studio is very clean, after the first ever Saxapahaw Holiday Open House.  I'll try to get a photo of that--not very exciting, but the transformation is pretty amazing, considering it was a Sea of White a few weeks ago, then a storage unit for boxes after that--we could hardly move.

I have a gallery space here, too--will get a photo of that.


  1. I like your blog and your new work. You have developed a didtinct style

  2. Thanks, Lorrie! Settling on a style has been a journey--there are so many options to explore! The work may evolve a bit more, but the human/non-human bond is something that I feel very passionate about.
