This a dish I just finished to donate to the Hope From Helen Auction at Wrightsville Beach. It is a small copper dish that I stamped with the quote from Rumi, "Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull of that which you truly love." It is small, about 5 1/2 inches in diameter and about 2 1/2 inches tall. I enameled it with lead free, vitreous glass enamels in a kiln. I hope it goes to a good home!

RAP Grant Award

I rarely get to take classes. They seem to be always out of my budget. The last class I took was almost 4 years ago and I had to teach there to afford it. SO with that said THANK YOU to The Arts Council of Wilmington & NHC for so generously awarding me a Regional Artist Project Grant for tuition for a class with renowned artist Celie Fago!!!!!! Each summer Celie opens her Vermont studio for a four day sessions with 9 artists at a time. I am thrilled to study in such an intimate setting, with this artist whose work I adore. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!
