Extreme Winter in New York..

New York was very snowy and icy and crowded with cars buried in snow and people reveling in the freedom of not having to move their cars, or go to school or feed the meters, or remove garbage...

So, a bit of a slowdown for folks here. And for the transplanted Californian--kind of fun, really. I battered around in my mom's car all over the city and enjoyed being an unapologetic NYC driver once again (my kids get very mad at my cursing ways driving about civil San Francisco--but as I explained to my daughter-people are aggressive in NYC and too polite behind the wheel in SF).

The NYIGF was great--reconnected with some of my clients and met lots of new ones--
I will be a busy bee for the next several months--all good, thank you very much. I feel so lucky to spend my work life doing something that is so fun, creative and exciting. It is hard work, lots of physical labor too-but feeds the soul on so many levels.

Back in San Francisco now to an eery 80 degree day.

And happily back to the studio, which is expanding to our cottage. The chicken coop is in need of a little back up, so some of the operations will move to the cool cottage we have rented out for years in our backyard here, in the compound. We reclaimed it to expand the local operations here.  It is being transformed as we speak, and will become a showroom, glazing studio and all around fun house! Do come by if you are ever in san Francisco. My studio and environs are always open to visitors by appointment. I am just a few blocks up from Golden Gate Park and the Japanese Tea Gardens-DeYoung-Academy of Science----so come on by!

Lots of new ideas and images brought back with me from NY--so stay tuned for new pieces-
