In Times of Terror Wage Beauty

The art piece above is my version of the Pedernal Mountain near Taos, New Mexico.

Bowls With Stories to Tell

It seems I have become the golden joinery fix it lady — the creatrix of Kintsugi. Bowls and platters have found their way to me for loving repair, each with a story to tell.
