Back from Mexico

First a reminder: there are 2 spots left for the May intensive at my studio (May 7 – 11). This intensive focuses on troubleshooting in the firing process, finishing work, and a lot of caning and mokume gane.

The five-day workshop I taught in Puerto Vallarta was an unforgettable intensive. A small group at a beautiful retreat called Hacienda Mosaico. We had breakfast together, then worked until 2 p.m., had lunch together, and continued working till late afternoon; at night, we sat by the pool, told stories, and had the best laughs ever. What can be better than bonding over art and Margaritas? I miss you girls already. I hope we can do this again some day.

I took a few photos (some out of focus, sorry). Here are the stairs leading to the studio:

Here are some pieces we made:

The pendant above was made by someone who never touched metal clay before.

So pretty before firing

The earrings above were not fired yet when the picture was taken, but the colors were so pretty before firing.

Wearing our creations:

This is where we spent mornings, afternoons and evenings.

This is almost all of us in a restaurant on the last night. The guy in front is my hubby. (I’m the teacher; he’s the entertainment.)
