Fiber and Clay Holiday Sale and Open House

This weekend I'm participating in a Holiday Sale with my friend Lisa Goldberg at her studio. We'll be open Sat., Dec. 3 from 1-4 pm and Lisa's studio is located at 4619 Meredith Road in Yellow Springs, Ohio.

Lisa makes beautiful hand-built functional ceramics that can be used in daily life and also creates mixed media masks that are often embellished with found objects. She fires her ceramics in a soda-kiln located on her property. To see more of her work, visit her website.

Dalmatian Specialty Wine Glass Coasters

Recently I was contacted by someone who works at a pet obedience school and they were hosting a Dalmatian Specialty event and wanted something to give to the participants (the people, not the dogs). 

They decided they wanted some wine glass coasters in black and white and dog related. I found the bone and paw print fabrics on-line and paired them with some black spots on white and white spots on black. Pretty cute!
