Sasha Bakaric ordered one of my necklace off my Etsy site and we began emailing, she's an accomplished potter and teaches at the Durham Art Council, She is also a member of two guilds, Clayworks Potters Guild in Durham and Triangle Potters guild in Raleigh and her work can be found in galleries in the US and UK. In her own words, "I hope to continue to grow and to reach more people with my pieces. I want them to smile and feel good when they see and touch my pieces. I want them to feel the connection." I'm certainly feeling the connection, especially since we share a love for trees! I just took a pottery class at Claymakers, and let me tell you, it's not as easy as some make it look. I have a great deal of appreciation for the medium. Thank you Sasha, for letting me feature your art here! You can see more of Sasha's work on her website www.SashaCeramics.com.

Well here it is, my blog at last! I've been wanting to do this for a while so I'm happy that I finally took some time to get started on it. I'll be adding a lot more links and hopefully be posting every other day or so. I'll be sharing some of my newest works and what's going on with PhotoGlassworks as well writing about my favorite things. Hope you enjoy!
