a ring for an october birthday. so fun to try to get the little pom pom in the cup while wearing:)
larger pieces pictured are tea set for friend and collector of jess brown dolls. handles over sized so the dollys can slip their hand through and hold onto the cups:) dream catcher cup and saucer studies .

but for now fall and winter collections await as well and the care and keeping of my lovely daughter maddy who has caught pneumonia...in the summer? she is so busy, responsible and so sensitive to the needs of others and i like seeing her able to surrender to rest. my son and i have removed all duties from her for the week, something she seems very uncomfortable with :) surrender and acceptance always a tricky mindset to sit in.
firing clay pieces this week for commissions and fall and winter collections and making felted things for fall. anxious to share and to post all that is happening in the brain world of miss t for new collections and commissions. sometimes i feel i can't get there fast enough but for now i will stay in today...in this moment where all is well :)

so excited for my summer collection's opportunities to try new materials and forms...ring and bracelet sized pieces (with miniature tags:), oak gall ink for signatures, compostable paper ribbons for tagging and 100% recycled content paper with flower bits. so many layers of love...sweatering, hand sewing, handdyeing, knitting and pom poms aplenty. cast away yarn shop in santa rosa ca got a summer solstice delivery yesterday. the rest will be off to the ark before the end of the month.
next up 3 more tiny doll crowns and a fluffy skirt with pom pom trim. will try to post the results of these and other explorations this summer.

my summer collection should be titled "pom poms aplenty". i have lost count of how many i have made. pictured are a few : ) i must be off to continued work on summer including tags of 100% recycled paper with flower bits, knitted things, tiny wrist and ring sized pieces, ceramic wee teacups and saucers. Summer will be complete and at the ark and cast away by the last week in june.
yesterday, my first trip ever to angel island. i can hardly believe i have never been and walked the 360 degree view of the bay. still savoring, so good!

the landscape of my life has changed so much since the beginnings of my fairy adornments. my children need me now in ways that do not allow for the same sort of creative output. these days, educationally for them, there must be more guidance, more input, more thinking, displacing some of the mental places used for my creative run. we are taking on languages, geology and art history for our travels in the u.s. and abroad this year. my mind feels full of new information and things i must remember and everyday i think "where does the time go?" as i slip further behind schedule for my spring collection.
25 fresh pieces will emerge soon though: )
pondering where my art fits into my evolving life at the moment and all those new creative thinkings i want to try...little books, silken baby sized tutus, ceramic buttons and metal clay jewelry....
perhaps spring is their hatching time and not winter. i will craddle those little thinkings and keep them warm for a better hatching climate:)
