Input from other artists

As most already know, garden totems are a successful piece of art I make.  The customers love them. I love making them.  Each bead is a small piece of art in itself.

Some folks have mentioned that some of the beads look a bit like sea urchins.  After hearing that a number of times, I decided to do something about it.  I cleaned up the studio in order to switch over to porcelain and I got to work.  I made only a few of these but they do look great.  I think I may be on to something.   But what to do with them….more totems, or the wall.  Stack a few together?  I asked my facebook followers for ideas.  I got some wonderful input.  Yup, totems, shadow boxes for wall mounting, place a grouping on a wall-free of frames…..I cant wait to hear your opinions.  Stay tuned for more photos as things progress.

If you have any ideas, I would love to hear about them.  As things progress over the next few weeks, I will keep you posted.  I will also focus on trying to figure out how to make this blog look a bit better.
