Amazing Talent

Circle craft fair in Coal harbour was a great long weekend with many talented crafters and artists. There is so much talent out there, a very down to earth bunch of people who create what they believe in. Of course a lot of jewelry, but we are all different.

My first appreciation goes to a pottery artist from Vancouver Island, Cathi Jefferson Pottery. I admired her work for many years and it happened that her booth was next to mine. Her work is salt fired to cone 10 and she draws delicate flowers on her ware.

The opening evening of the Artwalk in Whistler is always a great community affair. People get out and admire the many displays of talented artists. Local restaurants and shops display visual pieces and most of them are for sale. My creations are featured in Ruby Tuesday.

Why is one drawn to visit Europe?

It has so much history and is so old , Architecture young and old is amazing. The way they built this massive palaces and churches is mind boggling, especially when you count the fact that they did not have cranes and power lifts. There they have old buildings to admire, here we have old trees and nature. We should really value our nature because once its gone it cannot be replaced.
