Two post in less than a month! 

Show season is getting ready to start. I use the months of January and February to play and explore. Lately, it's been for the birds  and I've been having fun.

You already met "Lula Belle" and her little friend and now you can meet Ms. Suess, not sure if she's the sister or wife of my original "Suess".

So here she is.

The fun continues in the studio and I look forward to adding some new things soon!

But for now, Mexico is starting to call...

Quick note to share that Fire Foxes Glass will be at Glass Craft and Bead Expo in Las Vegas, Friday March 31st - Sunday April 2.
We'll be at table G-10.

It's a great show and something Joy and I have been talking about for several years.

Come by and say "hi" to us! We'll have glass beads as well as finished work. Pictures to come!

Happy New Year!

Will not make promises that I will post more often but we shall see.

I continue to enjoy making my mini-birds. Meet my new feathered friend, "Ms. Lula Belle" - Did I do that?"

She looks like she can't figure this out - "What is it?  "Did I do that?"

Have wanted to do something like this for quite awhile. 

Well, she tickled me - hope she tickles you too!

P.S. - "Ga Ga" has a new home.

Lawrence Street Gallery - Think Small '16

This is a gallery I have shown work in over the years and I was a member for about 2 years. Traveling made it tough to put in the time I needed to, but from time to time, I have work on display there.

I have two of my pets on display, "Ga Ga" 
and "Za Zu.

If you have a chance, stop by Lawrence Street Gallery, and check out the show.

A Peek at some new work for Winter Wonders Show.
Hard to believe we have been home from our travels for only 3 weeks. Amazing I got anything done while dealing with some wicked jet lag.

At any rate, here's something new from me - a new twist on birds. It's a work in progress. And I don't have any time to take pictures of the new pieces - rather be making stuff.

So here's a preview -

They are fun to do but right now it looks like a tropical bird exploded in my studio - feathers everywhere!

The trio will be making their debut at the Winter Wonders Show - details are in the blog.

Winter Wonders Holiday Glass Show

This show is sponsored by Glass Act and I believe it's our 10th year doing this show.

It's a lovely show full of handmade glass work. There is a wide variety of work available.

All done by local glass artists.
 I will be there with new work - and if I get myself together, I will post new pieces that will be available

But in the meantime, see if you can guess which piece on the post card is mine...

Home again -

Good to be home from BeadFest Summer. As per usual, we had a wonderful time at the show, seeing our old friends and making new ones.

We fit right into our new home on Artisan's Alley and discovered that the drapery there matched our table coverings perfectly!

And we enjoyed shopping of course and talking with the vendors we see there each year.

Hope to return next year! But for now, time to prepare for Bead Bonanza, Southfield, MI - Sunday, October 9th.
