|Here is the layout of a new design. |
It will be a gift to Jimmy.
I have met a wonderful Ann Arbor porcelain artist,
Mary Dixon, who makes (and owns) fabulous dogs!
|Here is the project a week later, |
coming along nicely.
No sign of those Corgis yet.
|Here is the finished project, |
a design of Jimmy and our 2 dogs
on a "walk about".
Mary custom designed the figure of Jimmy,
I love her work!

I attended a Totem Pole workshop at the Chicago Mosaic School with Sherri Warner Hunter.
Here are some photos of the 5 day workshop. Everyone had fun, amazing totem poles were made by amazing artists. I will show you my concrete and mosaic piece once it is finished.

|Les came over to move the Tiger, |
he has the right kind of tractors to do the job.
Les is used to moving big trees, so a tiger seems easy to move.
|When Tigers Fly|
|Tiger installed into his new home.|
I will plant some Tiger grass and Banana trees next year
to make it look like he lives in a jungle.

This piece is made with Smalti, which is traditional handmade glass used in medieval and Renaissance Europe. Orsoni Smalti is handmade by Angelo Orsoni in Venice, Italy. This simple design has some charm, yes?

These photographs are from the evening at Philippe Faraut's home in New York.
I thought you might like to see some more of his work. (Take a look at his website by clicking on his name.)
|This shot I thought interesting, inside his studio.|

|A portrait of Don, he is a wonderful man who lives in Honeoye, NY.|
Philippe Faraut often asks him to be the model for his sculpting class.
|Jimmy has the time on Sunday to make refinements to the sculpture of Don|
he began in the workshop last week.
