Wow, the Studio Tour is over and almost a week has passed by. It's hard to believe. The hubster and I are taking a much needed weekend off to catch our breath. Here are a few pics of the house with all of our art and jewelry. There wasn't much time to get pics of people during the tour. We were busy talking and showing people around. The house was as much a part of the tour as the art itself. It feels very good to have so many people appreciate our home as we do ourselves. It was a labor of love building it and we feel rewarded with all the positive feedback.
This is one of Steven's kinetic sculptures. The little black horizontal bars move when you touch them. He has a collection of several of these - all different, but similar. They are made with local driftwood, rusty washers and nails, and wire. Some are painted, and some are natural like the one pictured.
This mobile is called Piano. Steven sold this on Saturday. He delivered it to a home on Whidbey Island yesterday. One of his kinetic sculptures was sent to Virginia.
This mobile is called School. It too is going to a home on Whidbey Island.
Here is a collection of some of my jewelry. The studio was filled with little nooks of jewelry. I had work in progress on my bench and was able to show people how I worked. So many people had never heard of metal clay. I had a lump of bronze clay on hand to pass around. It's so much fun to share information about this relatively new material. People were utterly amazed that a lump of clay can be transformed into a piece of metal - let alone a piece of jewelry.
Freeze frame! What a cooperative audience!
Thank you to everyone who came out on the tour. We had a wonderful time sharing and visiting with all of you!
