Big Announcement! I have added a gift shop to my website. <start celebration> I’m super excited about it, so I hope you don’t mind if I stop writing for a second and do a little celebration dance. (woop woop!) </end celebration> On with the details! In my day-to-day, I make a lot of small things while I wait for the kiln to run on larger projects. For example, instead of making test tiles, I often make small jewelry pieces to test out colors and ideas. It’s a fun outlet. So, I’ve decided to add them to a small gift shop on my site. The shop will not carry any of my gallery work – you’ll still find all of those pieces where you usually do. Instead, the gift-shop will only feature items that are not available for wholesale. To get there, you can follow the “Gift Shop” Link, click on the image link, or look for the shop link on social media. Working hard to add more items all the time. See you there?

Here’s why: Each month, I’m dedicating time to update and refinish my “art business infrastructure.” And this month? It’s a full force effort in to fixing up my website. I’m ready to admit I’ve let it fall behind under the guise that I am going to move it to another platform. But, after some research, I’ve realized that all it really needs is some extra effort. So . . . here’s what you should know right now: Sorry in advance for what is about to be a digital storm. (Sorry/not sorry?) I will also be updating new jewelry and other small items into the webshop. It’s okay if you’ve never noticed it – I never really announced it because I built it as a beta test. To apologize for the imminent e-blizzard and to thank you for reading this far, I’m offering an additional 25% off all items listed in the webshop …

Inspired by Koi, this sanke diptych is inspired by my favorite type of fish. Sanke are typically red and white and black koi that are so well known. The texture of the portal creates an effect similar to the glint of color underneath the water of a koi pond. This diptych is created with reclaimed glass, pigments, ink, and mixed media. The set arrives ready to hang and includes both piece, one 11″ and one 9″ diameter.
River Vessel, a reclaimed glass vessel measuring 27″ wide x 11′ deep is available only at Fire and Rain Gallery in Folsom, CA.
