Art Shoes...Would Artists Wear These?

These vinyl Arty Party booties by Sophia Webster gave me pause to wonder.  Would real painters or artists wear them?  

I guess most importantly, these and other wonderfully fun and funky shoes by designer Sophia Webster are carried in stores like Neiman Marcus.  And many of my artist friends don't normally splurge quite to that level.  (I know, we blow the budget on new tools, cool new colors or supplies!)

So my question is..as an artist or craftsperson, would you wear these?  (not buy them, but wear them.)  And if you don't fall in those categories, would you wear them?  

Looking forward to hearing your response.

Sushi Monday...Looks Like Murrine To Me!



 I ran across this wonderful sushi art by Takayo Kiyota.  She is a master sushi chef in Japan.  As a glass artist, I can appreciate what went into making these- both the design as well as the execution as our inedible techniques might physically last longer, but this is really awesome too.  And I just want to know whether people actually eat these small works of art, or love to look at them as I do.

Just wanted to share with you.  See you again soon.

Owls, Monsters & Ghouls...O.M.G!

I'm back teaching lampwork glass Halloween beads at FlameTree Glass in Roswell, GA on Oct. 19 from 12-4pm.  Come join us and have some fun.  We'll make three beads and you'll get loads of hints and tips throughout the class. See you there!

Pancakes Any Time of Day

I have to admit, I'm a fan of pancakes.  Well, perhaps it's mostly the real maple syrup.  So when I saw these pancake beanbags which also have additional pillow pats of butter, I thought someone else might enjoy them too.

Now I think I need to mention that I make glass pancake beads as well.  Again, calorie free, which is a good thing.
(please note: this bead appears larger than in real life!)  See how I got the syrup to drip down the sides?  And a pat of butter too.  You can tell how I like them!

If you would like a pancake bead, please email me.  They are $27 which includes shipping.
