My giant solar dragonflies — so colorful, so big, and they light up at night! — always attract a crowd. They also lured a photographer from The Tennessean and I couldn’t be more proud! Thank you Shelley Mays! Tennessee Craft  (formerly “TACA” – Tennessee Association of Craft Artists) was a fun, great spring show this year — lots of sunshine, scores of folks enjoying beautiful Centennial Park on pretty much the first gloriously warm, cloud-free day of the season. It was wonderful!

Babyfish grow up, sort of

Hi! For years I’ve been making babyfish — a low-cost way to enjoy the beauty of stained glass, and the fun of a bobbing, moving sculpture. This spring, thought I’d add some new colors — purples, blues, golds, teal. Lots of teal.  Look in the middle — there’s a place where a copper pole (provided by me). And, they love the outdoors. Stay tuned for more pix, and a demo of how they work in the garden, or containers.
