I have been gathering images, researching other found object artists from the 16th century to now and I have inspired myself to get busy and make some new work for the 2 Potters Show.

the Picasso Sculpture exhibit at MoMA...a huge body of work from 1914 - 1964,

We had the good fortune to meet the young woman who heads the design team, what a fun job and what beauty she creates.
