The Community Book Tree Sculpture is now permanently installed at the Ventress Memorial Library in Marshfield, MA. This sculpture was funded through grants from the Marshfield Arts Council and the Friends of the Ventress Memorial Library. One hundred library patrons were invited to inscribe a clay leaf with their name and a favorite book title! The fired clay leaves surround a smiling tree woman to create a striking 6′ x 4′ wall relief sculpture. Stop by the VML and take a look!

Cast your Pregnant Mama Belly in Clay!

This is a wonderful opportunity to have a beautiful visual memory of your pregnancy and the baby growing within you. I dip plaster gauze strips in warm water to make a mold of your pregnant belly, in the comfort of your home. Friends and siblings are welcome to be a part of the process. Then, I will bring your belly mold to my studio where it will be strengthened. When dry, I will press clay into it to create a cast of your beautiful pregnancy belly!  The clay cast is fired in my kiln. Your beautiful mama belly can be decorated in a variety of ways, and can hang on the wall.
