The pictures of Marcia Laska’s West Virgina studio are stuck in my head. Even though it’s still under construction, her three-level creative retreat looks dreamy to me. Marcia has a companion web site also under construction with just a few pictures in her gallery.
She says of the location, “We’re miles from the nearest neighbor or tarred road. We generate all our own power, mostly from solar and wind generators, and we communicate with the outside world through a satellite downlink.” Solitude, self-sufficiency and an internet connection! Heaven.
Marcia’s first love is fiber and she began using polymer clay as accents for her hand-dyed and knitted scarves. She’s also the Recording Secretary for the National Polymer Clay Guild. Now maybe I can get back to work and stop daydreaming about spring in West Virginia.
