Mountain Living Clocks

I grew up on a ranch outside of Basalt, Co in the 60s and 70s long before Aspen or Glenwood were any big deal. Riding horses on the ranch and watching my brother take care of live stock are some of my earliest memories. Being pulled up the "mountain" at Buttermilk by...

For the Love of the Aspen

The ranch that I grew up on is at 6800 ft. But the land around the ranch is at 8200 ft. and that is where the most beautiful Aspen groves are.

Teaching Myself to Paint

I’m teaching myself how to paint with the help from YouTube (best invention ever).

I’m not sure it’s really painting yet, maybe just moving paints around a canvas. Ha!

Mountain Living Clock Time

I grew up in the mountains in Basalt, Colorado. I love making these clocks because I think they are a fun representation of Mountain Living. The mountains, snow covered cabins, Aspen and Pine trees and wildlife. The clocks are 24” or 18” round and are colorful and a bit whimsical. (Click on article to see BIGGER video)

They are also fun to make because of all the different applications. I outline all the images with a burning tool. These clocks are stained and painted and burned. I love the different textures and colors.

Special orders welcome, takes 4 to 6 weeks.

Menorahs

Some friends asked me if I could make Menorahs for them. I've found that they are interesting to make and can just use my imagination and own color themes. Traditional Menorahs are blues and silver or clear which are beautiful, but I can also make them more colorful...

Rivers & Sunsets

The River Collection is caught up in wave glass, reflecting the liquidity of currents flowing in nature.

Be Bold

There are no rules to being Bold in personalities or glass colors.  Are you Bold?

Fun for Kids

With 6 Grand Kids so far, it has been great fun to paint for them.

Brindle Birds

Brindle Birds

My husband started calling me Brindle Bird years ago. Cannot remember why. My Granddaughters all call me Nanny Bird. So that is where these came from. Fun transparent birds that hang in a window.

What’s a Kokopelli?

Kokopelli is a fertility deity, usually depicted as a humpbacked flute player, who has been venerated by some Native American cultures in the Southwestern United States. Like most fertility deities, Kokopelli presides over both childbirth and agriculture. He is also a...

Christmas

Christmas is always coming - except for Christmas Day!

Southwest Gourds

Gourds are a fascinating medium because they are so versatile. I fell in love with gourds because you can carve them, stain them, burn them and paint them. You can keep them closed or open them up. They are such fun.
