It's a Mud Hunt! A Mud Hunt!

All my hard work this month has paid off with a passel of new porcelain goodies in my Etsy store! You'll notice lots of fresh new ideas in this offering, from the RunequinesTM mosaics to the RelicRocTM pieces. And if you explore the sold pieces, you can see even more fun new ideas that got snapped up immediately.

Now some pieces have been withheld for auction, either because they're extra special thanks to serendipity, or because they won the round of "eenie meenie miney mo."

The OOAK Trinket Box #4 (above) is one of those pieces withheld for auction, all because of that random cracking around the heart. Who knew? Gotta love mud and fate!

So now you know why I've been so quiet on this blog for so long. Most of all though, as we've been getting back on our feet after three years of total chaos, I've been trying very hard to balance work with getting myself back on the mend. I haven't been able to create as much as I would have liked, but as the Christmas fiasco taught me...I must pace myself.

CBCM Reflective #7 is another piece that will be offered at auction soon. This piece took a lot of work since an Arabian head is so radically different from the original Reflective head, but he came out pretty cool. You just have to keep at it, especially when you want to run screaming to the hills.

That said, I hope to rectify my absence soon now that this sale is humming along and I can gear up for new production, such as for Christmas and new sculptures! And here's a great bit of newsBarry tells me the CubequineTM molds are done and ready to pop out horsey cubey goodness! Woot!

In particular, however, I want to get started on the Christmas 2012 porcelain ornament and some original busts and bas–reliefs in stoneware and porcelain. Plus finish the sculptures that have been orbiting half–done here for way too long. All in all, I can't wait to get started! Again!

Now if you want the inside scoop for when these pieces go up for auction, plus all the other debuts and sales goodies that pop out of the studio, subscribe to my new email newsletter! It's the exclusive source for all my sales bulletins!

So until the next poststay cool in this hot weather, get out there and enjoy yourself and, above all, stay creative!

The Equine Tapestry

Today my friend's labor of love went up for sale! You can buy it in two places, from her promotional page and from Amazon.

Many years of intense study, meticulous research, and great insight went into its making. Indeed, as long as I've known Lesli, she's been neck deep in stud books, photos, scientific papers, and pedigrees in her seeming unending quest to pick apart the secrets of equine color! In particular, she's been an invaluable guide for artists seeking to capture equine coat characteristics accurately.

This first volume represents a welcome milestone on the subjects of equine color, art, and horse breeding. If you have an interest in any of these subjects, this book is a wealth of knowledge, a visual treat, and full of intriguing details! A must have! I ordered mine today!

There's also a very popular blog that supports the book, as well as a Facebook page. Visit both for fascinating discussions on the subject! Can't wait for volumes 2-4!

Kudos and brava!
