2014 wedding designs

This year seems to be the year of wood and succulents for wedding designs. From slices of logs used as plate chargers to stumps of all heights holding candles and hollowed out logs used as vases, logs are everywhere! For this container, I used a small diameter (approx. 4″) limb cut in half long ways. Then, I cut the limb into equal lengths to cover the vase. Next, I wrapped a square vase with the pieces. You can glue them on permanently or tack them on with a temporary adhesive and wrap with twine or ribbon for more details. Fill with flowers and foliage of your choice and your done!

My Studio

When we first purchased this property in 2000, my new studio was an existing pole barn.  There was also an old barn that had been converted into a hunting cabin, that I used for my studio until 2012.  My old space was broken into small rooms that did not suit my needs.  I began construction on my current studio space in 2012.  It was a fun design project.  I recycled all the old windows and doors from the old structure into one large studio space, designed to create all my art under one roof.  The studio is comprised of 4 rooms.   One is a long storage hallway where I keep my event decor organized and recently added a shipping area.  The largest area is designed to flip from pottery to event design very easily.  The third room has a glazing area and 2 kilns.  The last is a restroom.  It is truly wonderful to have designed a space that houses all my  creations under one roof!  My studio is not open to the public.  I meet by appointment only.
