Early Lehocky

I went way back into PCD archives to pick out my 2020 Ron Lehocky valentine. This is an early Ron though I’m not sure what year. Maybe he can tell us. The background dots are black on color. They frame the dimensional heart whose dots reverse to color on black. It’s loose and carefree, probably […] Read more

Unbroken circle of friends

I like the bags of “inchies” swapped and then squirreled away in ziplocks in the back of the bottom drawer. They make me nostalgic and bring a smile.

A nip in the woods

Kentucky’s Chris Owens (chris325o) uses layers of Cernit metallic clays with a touch of Sculpey Souffle white to achieve this tree bark look. She’s made a big mokume gane veneer that wraps all around the Blue Bark Flask. Chris makes luscious mid-century modern patterns collide with woodsy colors.
