Danny Mansmith

What can I say except that I really love Danny's work. This necklace has me reeling. Which is perfect because they are fabulous circles...

In the studio: Lots of clay action goings on in the studio here at artstream. Little nesting bowls made of clay with special imprints and glazing techniques. Everyone is working on pieces which we will feature in our upcoming June exhibit at the Rochester Public Library! Did you hear? Our new summer classes, camps and workshops are on line! Yay - spring must really be here! Somewhere!

it really should be springtime...

... and it does come closer, but it slipped back this week. It's freezing right now and luckily I have a load of writing today to do on my book so I can view the sunshine from inside and keep the windy cold outside!
Here's to a productive Sunday!

Students working

A quick hello from the studio! Yes, it's been a busy start to 2011 ... some exciting news of my book becoming a reality this year - and working on it with my husband behind the camera -- and the finest publisher anyone could ever imagine. Quarry books will be publishing it in 2012. For now though here is a quick shot of one of my student's warm up sketches. It's just a day in the life! What are you drawing?

Color ruled my weekend ...

Lots of fun and creativity in colors of the rainbow happened this weekend at artstream. It's incredible to work with tiny tools, beeswax, (oh it smells heavenly), and smooth white eggs! Pysanky eggs are wonderful to make and we had so much fun that we are doing it all again on April 19th. Sign up now to learn a wonderful traditional art of Ukrainian egg decorating. Everyone from age 7 and up can try this!

Fun with ink

Just a couple photos of last night's fun with ink. I had my mixed media students working with their inner doodles, in ink. These are mine as I didn't think to shoot theirs last night! A grey day is a good day for a serious doodle session ... These were done with a popsicle stick and some India Ink.

Hello March!

In like a lamb today, but there is still quite a bit of ice to be found around the edges of the place. Watch your step! As you can see by the photo there are plenty of bare walls and pedestals to fill. That's tomorrow. Until then- you should take a last look online at the exhibits from before. We are working hard right now on our new site and shop - new new new. I just love that word! Till then ...
