Fall brings out the best in the Japanese Maple close to the Studio
Thanksgiving week was a time to relax and renew friendships with our family and friends. Wednesday before
Thanksgiving, two families with their adult children who returned home for the holdidays visited the studio: Ryan and Ava
Page and their mom Karen McCall, and Casey Privalle with her mom, Laura. Uncle Peter, a pilot, flew in for Wednesday afternoon
and left at 6:30 am Thursday morning. Our son, Tyler, is in Copenhagen for the semester, so having other young adults in the studio was bittersweet...wonderful
to see our children grow up, and sad that they have their own lives to live.
I had two days of eating more than
believable and visiting with sister-in-law Hilary and husband Skeetz. On Sunday, my birthday (29 and holding), 17 (SEVENTEEN)
people came to the studio. Everyone was great about sharing table space and making do with seating. Each table had it's own character, though Christmas
was a common theme.

Bronze Pour at Liberty Arts Tonight
2:23 pm est
There will be live music by the Dogs of a Feather at Liberty Arts tonight, and a bronze pour at 8 pm. Address 538 Foster
St, Durham (across from the Durham Farmer's Market.) If you have never seen molten metal poured into sand/resin molds,
this is your opportunity. Very exciting. Music starts at around 6 pm and will continure after the pour.
For more pix, find Liberty Arts on facebook. For the real thing, come on down tonight, have a glass of wine, a bite
of cheese, and some fun conversation with your friends, old and new.
Oh, there will be art for sale, too. Come do some holiday shopping!!!

OLLI Classes Winding Down
Another Wonderful OLLI session (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Duke University) is winding
down. Several first-timers completed ambitious projects, such as Hitzie's side light for her front door, and Marion's
wall hanging . We worked with glass "collage", used glass powders and frit to create details, embedded photographs into
glass, and "wove" glass into bowls. Folks went into "production" mode the last weeks to get ready for the holidays, and many are coming back for
Open Studio Time . Thanks, everyone. I loved it (as always) and hope to see you again soon.
