Learning, the act of gaining knowledge, is a craft unto itself. It starts with questions - the what ifs, how abouts, whys, . . . leading from the unknown to the known, through inquiry, experimentation, travel, and of course pure accident.

This is about how it happens in my life.

The Star Sept 11 Papier Mache Project

Make a donation to The Star Santa Claus Fund, and one of these will be yours - free!
Here is an article in The Star about this project: crafty approach to philanthropy


 I've illuminated these trees with small LED puck lights (about $3 each)


 This piece is called 'infinite gilt'  - it looks bottomless in just the right light.  Water resistent.






  Here is the Blue mask, with and without flash (dark eyes)

Here are pictures of the Red Mask, with and without the flash again



 


 These are a few more gift tube containers r 'pop' l 'fritz'



Here are 3 gift containers, suitable for a favourite tipple, or to store your knitting needles!

this is watch out for black holes, is food safe and can accommodate a 2L ice cream container to make it waterproof on the inside.

this is galaxy

deep fire, inspired by underwater terra forming and life sustaining volcanoes

ancient life is no longer available
ancient life - a food safe bowl inspired by moss and algae

this is perfect day

reclamation - thinking of our very complex relationship with our earthly home

I've called this one hardened - hammered metal and concrete

citric - a shallow bowl, food safe like all the others

three of the frames I made: not 1000, patched, and trip. Each comes with a template to help place the picture in the right place.  3M Command Adhesive strips should be sufficient (and safe) for putting them up on your wall. 
'not 1000' is no longer available
