ACC Atlanta

Posted in About My Work, Art Happenings, Festivals and Shows with tags , , , , , on March 9, 2012 by candlesandghosts

Here we are in the grand old southern city of Atlanta for ACC Atlanta.  It’s the first day of three, and thus far the show has gone slightly better than I expected.  Not that I had any major expectations, but the crowd has been fairly good, and we have been well received.

I’m happy with the look of the booth, though I will admit I find myself missing the larger booth we had in Baltimore.

In some ways this 10′ x 10′ feels more enclosed after having the 20′ x 5′, but we’ve been told by many visitors that it feels very inviting and open, so that’s good.

Besides, how else am I supposed to pass the idle time at shows other than finding the smallest things to obsess over?

I suppose I could work on my memoirs…if only I were an interesting read.  I think if I were a TV series I’d have to cancel myself.

Until next time,

Big Changes

Posted in art, Festivals and Shows with tags , , , , , on April 13, 2011 by candlesandghosts

You may have noticed a new look for the blog- I figured it was about time.  I felt like it wasn’t looking as good as it could/should and so I’m in the process of making some changes.  The most obvious change will be the size of images.  Aside from making the page larger, I have also almost doubled the image sizes.  I hope this makes them easier to see.  I’m also tweaking a few other things, so if things change slightly over the next little bit, don’t be surprised.

Here’s an image of the booth from the American Craft Council show in Baltimore in February.  Overall, it was a wonderful show, and we will certainly do it again next year.

If you want to see the best in contemporary and traditional craft this is the show to visit.

Until next time,
