Fungi friday

Daughter Chloe has been devoting a lot of time this school year to the study and construction of clay fungi. This is a loner - but click through to see some of the other works which we herded into a set at flickr. There are so many more. We love them!

Handmade clay buttons

buttons, originally uploaded by artstreamstudios.

I have been making stoneware and porcelain clay buttons for artstream and Lucy's Art Emporium. They are all silkscreened and in two shapes - round and heart. Stop by to check them out - they are great as replacements and for handknits as well as hand sewn!

Photoshoot, originally uploaded by artstreamstudios.

As you may of realized by now, I am writing a book. A book about making art with kids (but every adult will find something in here they will want to make too!) I couldn't be a luckier gal than to have my husband Rainer in charge of shooting all the photos. The kids love him and he and I work so well together. It's easy (hard) work, and the kids are great. Each and every one of them. A dream come true, this book of ours. So I had to show a little peek into the process we are enjoying this week. The book will be released March 2012, so there *is* a little wait ... but it will be worth it!! Adding in here: I am almost done with the book, and it will be published by Quarry books, which is additionally exciting because they are fantastic people to work with! Thanks to them, the last 20 years of teaching is coming together in one place.

Happy fun pot ...

Happy fun pot ..., originally uploaded by artstreamstudios.

Just a crazy little pot I had fun making. It might needs some brothers and sisters though ... maybe they will all be herb pots. I love the idea of them having chives for hair or cilantro!

The word of the day (a long forgotten feature of this blog...) returns!
Here is a simple cheese shaker turn vase. A simple way to hold some blooms in place. Tiny and terrific!
Now where are those blooms....

Jane's jewelry

My friend Jane Eslinger, makes jewelry - and now we are carrying it at artstream. It's whimsical and bold and many pieces are made from copper with a lovely green patina. A few pieces are here in the online shop - with many more live in the gallery! Drop by and try on a fish or a swirl! Very affordable and perfect for gift giving.
