Show Schedule for Spring

We’re so excited because we’ve been re-accepted into the White Rock Local Market (alternatively known as the Green Spot Market because of the gas station on that corner). 

Date is Saturday, March 10 from 8:00 am till 1:00 (might be till 2:00 if it’s a beautiful day) with a whole heaping helping of NEW hypertufa, wood, glass, jewelry and just cool things for you to use to beautiful your home and office, or to give as gifts to those deserving folks in your life.  (like teachers!)  I have a bunch of sweet little vase-lets with live plants for less than $15 that I hope you’ll squee over.  Also some larger-format table pieces that utilize driftwood from White Rock Lake.  I think that might be about as local as it gets.

Later in the Spring, going into summer I daresay, we’ll proudly be representing our neighborhood at the East Dallas Art and Garden Tour on Sunday, May 20!

This annual event is not to be missed, whether you’re into gardening, art, architecture, snooping into the lives of others… ha ha, just kidding there… but truly this is one of the more interesting and edifying of the many home tours that are offered in Dallas every year.  There are nine gardens on offer, three from each of three East Dallas neighborhoods – Forest Hills, Little Forest Hills, and Casa Linda.  Since there is such a concentration of artsy/craftsy/outdoorsy folks living in those areas, the results of the tour are often very pleasantly surprising.

We’ll update the blog to let you know exactly which house you will be able to find us, with our concrete/hypertufa pots and wood sculptures.

‘Branching out’ with new work

If a tree falls in a lake in the middle of Dallas, does anyone take much notice? I kind of do, but that’s why I’m weird.  Maybe you will too once I make something pretty out of it? 

 How about these, for instance?
 

These pieces of wood came from White Rock Lake, fished out by yours truly and hauled off to my evil lair and workshop, a mere mile away.  This is doing the lake a favor too – it does not need as many rotting branches and roots as end up there (but I leave plenty for the ducks to roost in, no worries!) I think they are just beautiful as a centerpiece, bringing nature indoors.  cau
