Settling in– Ann Arbor

Settling in to my new environs, new light, new temps, no time schedules.
Found at FOUND the other day (my favorite place in Ann Arbor): DIY magazine from the 30s. The sailboat pattern caught my eye, but the step-by-step directions on how to build a little trailer got me!


Tomorrow I will go back and talk to Mary, the owner, about carrying some of my birds and maybe boats!

Ships Ahoy Matey!

I was excited to get a commission to design and build a pirate ship earlier this spring. Great fun and the client (who I never met) loved it.


It’s been a busy winter. jose2

Lots going on this past winter/spring. January 19 opened an exhibit with weaver Ann Keuper at Petroglyphs on South Park in the Lost Barrio. It was a great success, I sold several pieces, and we had a well attended Artists’ Talk with mimosas and a chocolate fountain.
