Art in the Vineyard – ready for showtime!By
Early this morning, I did my FINAL POUR for this weekends art show, Art in the Vineyard at Frogpond Farms. Tito and I went through 12 cases of resin, poured roughly every 8-10 hours for 3 weeks and produced 65 pieces of jewellery for sale at the show. On top of that, Tito spent countless hours in our ‘studio’ (er, 8ft x 6ft den) cutting, shaping, soldering and filing copper and brass bezels.
Last night I started putting chains on all the pendants. It’s so amazing to see all that hard work come together! Tomorrow morning we will pack it all up (along with my wheel, of course) and head out to Niagara-On-The-Lake. The weather promises to be warm and sunny for Tito and I’s first show as a couple, can’t wait!
There are many things you have to do to prep for a show, and one of them is photography. Believe it or not, this is where I fell down. There simply wasn’t time. Instead I offer you a selection of our latest pieces, via instagram :) We have bell flowers, cinquefoil, red clover, chives, wild geraniums, English lavender, pansies, columbines, chicory, trefoil and at least 10 more plant species that I don’t know the name of.
If you’re in the area, or you feel like getting out of town this weekend, come visit us! There will be great food, great wine, and lots of other amazing artists!
Your jewelry is so very beautiful! I still haven’t tried making any of the spheres, because the molds are so expensive!
Good luck at your show! Have fun and soak in all of the compliments you will get :)
I am simply in awe of your stunning work – both of you! All aspects! Right down to the photography too!
I know you will do well – how can you not with such incredible work?
Enjoy yourself (after the mad setup) and I look forward to hearing about the show and seeing the pictures!
gosh, these pieces are works of art :-)
I love your jewelry and your aesthetic. Good Luck to you and Tito. It will be a fun weekend. Wish I could be there.
It was a pleasure meeting you on Saturday. I wrote about it in my blog: http://woolercoaster.blogspot.ca/2014/06/first-day-of-summer.html
Your work is beautiful. I hope you had a successful weekend.
