Happy Groundhog Day !

No rodents here of the marmot persuasion, but we do have some nice squirrels!

Squirrels by Mary Stanley

By now I'm sure you've all recovered from the holidays, have made your annual pacts-with-self to lose weight, and transitioned to spring cleaning. (...For those of you just visiting, you'll have noticed spring comes early here in Southern California...)

Here's what the art elves have been up to....

Diane Reese has been busy making canned goods to keep up with demand for her delicious jams, jellies, chutneys and salsas.

Try her Sun-Dried Tomato Jam,
Jalapeno Jelly,
or Curried Apple Chutney.

And for the sugar adverse, Diane makes jellies with no added sugar, in Apple Butter, Strawberry, Cherry and Blueberry. 

She also makes custom flavors to order!

Donna Anderegg has brought in some amazing porcelain ceramics. 
Check out her

sugar bowls.

Donna applies blue/black glaze to the greenware.
After bisque firing she applies green glaze inside,
clear glaze overall, then fires a second time.
