Christmas presents

I had to take a few days away from my usual artistic activities to make presents for Christmas. Here is one example.

silk flame bowl

This silk bowl, made from silk hankies, looks like the flames of a fire.

Encaustic Collage

I enjoyed teaching the class so much, that I decided to make a few of my own. These six pictures are each 6 x 8 inches, and work nicely as a group.

Craft Class Images

I teach a class in a new technique in December each year, and this year the technique was encaustic collage. I based the class on a technique demonstrated on HGTV by Kim Bernard. Take a look at,1789,HGTV_3255_4518927,00.html and see also for more of her work).

Here are some samples of the results produced by this very talented class:
