New Kid On The Block

Looks like summer is here and with summer comes change.  People move out but then people move in.

Introducing you to our new neighbor up the street.
CoQ RougE Gallery is located at 4815 Magazine St.  

Patricia Low is the owner/artist of CoQ RougE and her story is one that everyone dreams about.  Well...I dream about! 

Patricia, transplanted from California, many moons ago, where she majored in Fine Arts but after hearing all the "starving artist" stories about actually starving she decided to switch her major to graphic design.  
However, working here in NOLA as a graphic artist did not stop her strong desire to create pieces of art, from painting...

to her famous Voodoo Dolls...
After years of working in the industry and participating in local art markets in New Orleans she decided to follow her bliss and open her very own gallery.

Patricia filled this 200 square feet of space with local art from our sweet city of New Orleans.  Here is just taste of what you will see.

And look at this cute thing.

I do not know if you are wondering but I for one was curious as to why CoQ Rouge?  
One reason is that she likes roosters.  I should have figured that one out!  LOL!

Annnnd as they say...
 the rest is ancient history.

So...stop by and say, "Bonjour" to our new neighbor because...

The Arrowmont Experience Pt. 1

I know from previous experience that I had to ask the driver to stop at a grocery store before dropping us off at Arrowmont.  I was feeling so good about having all my ducks in order and then this happened! I'm sure I screamed WTH because everyone was looking at me but I wasn't the only one in shock.
I was thinking...great!  Now I will have to walk to get my wine.  LOL!!!

Arrowmont for 2 entire weeks!  Yeah....Bring it on.  I can do this...roommate annd all.
I was in Anne Havel's All Fired Up: Who Knew a Torch Could Do All This?
My notebook for ALLLllllll the notes I'm going to take.
OMG!  I don't know where to begin.  I have so much to share.  Let's see...
I fell in love with a cup.
Annnd...then I bought a cup made by Jason B. Burnett.  He had me at the hexagons. Just an aside here.  I couldn't buy the cup I fell in love with.  Arrowmont has an assortment of ceramic cups in the mess hall to use.  I could post a cup a day on Insta but my friend did that.  …


Mandalas have been on my mind a lot lately.  Struggling to find my truth.  I find making these in the studio calms me.
Even though I knew that hard solder melts at 1450 degrees I still had to try enameling the copper.  In theory the solder should not have run.  If I only took it out of the kiln a minute sooner this may not have happened. A total melt down but I love that color!  :) My intention for the above mandala was a ring.  The challenge was difficult but I managed to make it. I feel myself pivoting once again and feeling the need to create amulets and talismans but in sculpture form.

Each person's life is like a mandala - vast, limitless circle. We stand in the center of our own circle, and everything we see, hear and think forms the mandala of our life...everything that shows up in your mandala is a vehicle for your awakening.

Everything Is Beautiful From Far Away...Or Is It?

I'm getting all up there with my new Olloclip.
It just clips on to my iPhone 5S.  I think that is an adapter for the skinnier version of the phone.  I wanted something easier to carry around other then the massive camera to take real close ups.
Here's what I've done so far.

I'm still learning about the clip but for the most part pretty satisfied.  It's good for those close ups in the studio.  Here's me drawing down wire.  This is when I feel like a true metalsmith.  HAHAHAHA!!!
The clip is also good for your morning walks to get those beautiful close ups of nature.
You see...not everything is beautiful from far away.  Sometimes you have to lean in to see the beauty in the macro world.
Have a great Friday!
