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.
