Talking with my hands…

Trying to explain Penrose Tiles. Maybe I’ll have my explanation worked out in time for the Frederick Art Walk? Come see me on November 8th and find out!

Talking With My Hands

Holiday Season is Almost Over…

So, this past weekend wrapped up my last art show for this season. It was called the “Creative Spark Winter Market” and I have to say, it was pretty successful, especially for a new show in its first year. Both sales and attendance were higher than I expected, which is great! There was also a really great vibe to the show overall. If it happens again next year, I’ll probably do it again, despite a warning that the booth fee might be more in the future. Hopefully it won’t go up TOO much. Here’s a quick shot of my setup:

The Frederick Art Walk, which happened back in November, was also pretty good to me, as was the Central Art Walk. And now my shows are done! This is fantastic, because it means I can now turn my attention to the Very Long List of other things that need to get finished in the next two weeks (or less). Etsy shop maintenance, custom orders, more custom orders, oh and more custom orders!

Time to get back to work! 🙂

Oh my goodness, I have been so busy lately! Let’s see, what has happened since I got stuck on the Jiimaan?

The Central Art Walk was October 20 and 21st. I think it was pretty successful for me this year! I was a little worried about how things would go this year, for several reasons: I didn’t have soap to sell, I didn’t have nearly as much glass inventory on-hand as I would have liked, and the weather forecast for the weekend was looking rather threatening. But, I surpassed my sales total from 2011 despite all that, so thumbs-up! It’s always such a fun event, too. I love being able to open up my studio and actually work on stuff through the day as people come in.

Since then, I’ve been working super hard at getting ready for the next event, which is the Frederick Art Walk on Saturday November 10th. Once again I’ll be at 60 Chapel Street, which is location “G” on the tour. I would love to see you there!

Finally I want to share an Etsy-related thing. I’ve decided to try to use the new “variations” feature that they have introduced, so on my molecule pieces you can request different colours and solder finishes at checkout! Pretty cool. It means that I’ll have to create a custom piece to-order if the buyer chooses something other than what is actually listed, but hopefully I can manage to get the piece finished and shipped in a timely manner if someone buys something. We’ll see! Anyway, check out my science-geeky listings by clicking below!
