Featured Artist at the Arts Incubator in Siler City!

This week I was asked to be a Featured Artist down at the Siler city Arts Incubator! Very exciting! I worked so hard getting some silversmithed pieces together.. Between two days of that and tying pirate plug rigs for my father my thumbs were unbelievably sore! Last night was the lovely 3rd Friday Art Walk~ shops and galleries open, live music out in a wonderful courtyard, and a beautiful night on top of everything!

Fabulous Flame Smoothed Upcycled Glasses

I was so thrilled to look out my door last First Sunday and see Leslie Fesperman with a table of these glasses set up across the street! I was even more thrilled when she brought them in yesterday for me to stock my Sellers cabinet with wonderful sets of tumblers from Corona, Boylan, olive green, and lovely brown bottles (among others).

Leslie cuts them and then moves them through her glassworking flame to make the rim of the glasses smooth and wonderful to drink from.

They are truly recycled and earth friendly and I can't wait to go to the recycling center!
