Ohio State Fair

For my first post, I'm happy to write that my piece Pineapple Vessel has been excepted into the Ohio State Fair.  The piece  is pictured above and other shots of it can be found at my Flickr page (click the badge to the right of the blog posts).  Pineapple Vessel was created with crocheted fine silver wire and enamel.  The enamel is suspended within the openings of the crocheted wire in an enameling technique referred to as plique-a-jour, which causes the enamel to appear transparent, mimicking stained glass on a much smaller scale.
