so, my little secret that i wanted to blurt out to you guys
a few months ago
is in print now and i can finally reveal that i am the featured artiste
in the fall issue of bead & button magazine
and so it was nice to be interviewed again.
it puts things in perspective for you as an artist, i think,
to revisit your journey..to look at changes and new directions
by looking back at where you started.
it's quite a nice long article
with large lovely images..hehe
(except i really wish photo credit had been given..)
yvette doss did a great job writing it..i like her perspective and intuitive writing style
she (happily) mentions
the wonderful 'san gabriel bead company' in los angeles
where all of this crazy clay bead business started for me
and also peppers the article with mentions of 'etsy'
(which i was also very happy about)
and salmon and cemeteries and guadalajara
and all sorts of things that inspire/inform my clay work.
it's always interesting to see yourself through someone else's eyes, isn't it?
(and funny enough, it's really not embarrassing at all..!)
if you want to see a copy, it's on newsstands and in craftstores
and bookstores all over the world
(how cool is that?!)
and please contact me if you want me to autograph a copy for you..
wishing you a really happy mid-week..
see you tomorrow
with more fun.
