Superstorm Sandy

I hope that everyone is ok. I know most of the coast took a very hard hit. Thankfully here  is all ok. We had no damage at our house or at our studios.
The storm has delayed our install of our show. So now is Major crunch time. Steve and I will be very busy putting it all up and doing the finishing touches, probably up till the opening. It opens this Friday 6-8.

Gettting Ready for Co-Habitat

The last few days I have been going through all of my jewelry and organizing how it will be displayed. This is much more difficult then I had thought. Grouping it and making sure it all looks good. Of course it could all change once I am at Arts Worcester setting up. It it fast approaching. I can not wait on one hand and I am nervous on the other. It is going to look amazing by the way.

Worcester Center for Crafts

Yesterday I was at the Worcester Center for Crafts. It was great, I am now adjunct faculty and will start teaching in the January session. This is very exciting.
The metals studio (above) looks great. It was great to be there again. I was very sad to hear that they no longer have a wood studio.
You can find out more about the craft center at www.worcester.edu/WCC

A bandaw, a necklace, a pair of earrings

Yesterday, Steve fixed up the new/old band saw in my studio. Now I cut wood easily for the wood stove and who know what I will use it for.
Also made a new necklace from the pebbles and puddles series and new earrings with the 1/2 dome hollow form with my favorite letter texture, and these amazing green fresh water pearls with small black tourmaline's. I love these!!!!

Co-Habitat: The Studio Works of Steve Butler and Liesl Carlson

Co-Habitat, an exhibition of artworks by Steve Butler and Liesl Carlson, opens November 2 and will run through November 30, 2012. Inspired by the modern movement in furniture design and the New England winter landscapes, the artists of Co-Habitat give new life to old materials and create delicate textures on seemingly unyielding pieces of silver.  Various pieces of furniture and jewelry, expressing the connection of their materials to nature, will be displayed.
The opening reception for this exhibit will take place at the Aurora Gallery on Friday, November 2, between 6-8 PM in conjunction with These Four Walls, an open member exhibit of photography, in the lower gallery.  These exhibits and their opening celebrations are free and open to the public.
More information can be found at Arts Worcester .
This is so exciting. Steve and I are so looking forward to the exhibition. It is going to be amazing.
