Coming right up……..

I hope all of you have had a great summer.
I have purposefully taken more time for myself and family. After 40 some years of chaining myself to the bench, it’s been scary and refreshing all in the same breath.
That being said, I have a really great show coming up in September. It is the American Craft Exposition show at the Chicago Botanic Gardens in Glencoe, IL. First off, if you have never seen this show, it is one of, if not the very best shows in the country. I am extremely honored to have been chosen to exhibit in this show. Next, the venue……. oh man, this place is just too cool! The Botanic Gardens are just incredible! Acres and acres of beauty. Come for the show, come for the gardens, come for the day.

The show is: Thursday, September 20: 6PM – 9PM (Benefit Party)
Friday, September 21: 10AM – 6PM
Saturday, September 22: 10AM – 6PM
Sunday, September 23: 10AM – 5PM
I will be in booth 322.
Please see for ticket and preview party information.

Ok Tom, the party’s over, get to the bench, make cool things so that you don’t get run over at this show.
I hope to see you in a few weeks, enjoy the summer, while we have it

As we move to Spring

We have just returned from a really nice “pleasure” road trip. It started at our house, went to South Carolina, Georgia, San Antonio Texas (Final Four with the whole family!!) and back home. It was great trip. I was KIND of hoping to come back to some spring weather. That is not to be. For now, it is cold and there is some snow on the ground. I do know that it cannot last and it will not, I know, I know, quit whining.

So, onto the next show. I will be in American Craft Council show in St. Paul at the River Centre April 19-22. I will be showing all of my pieces in booth #309.
The dates and hours of the show are:
Thursday, April 19th 6pm-9pm (preview party)
Friday, April 20 10am-8pm
Saturday, April 21 10am-6pm
Sunday, April 22 11am-5pm
For tickets, including the preview party visit: ACC St. Paul Tickets

Well, now it is to the bench. I’ve been messing around for a couple weeks, I have some catching up to do!
I hope to see you in a couple of weeks!

Hello 2018!

It has been quite some time since I have written anything. Which I know is shirking my responsibility as a blogger. Though if any of you read this section, you already know that I am not a blogger. Or at least a frequent blogger.
So first, I would like to say, welcome to 2018 (one month late, see infrequent blogger above).
I’ve just updated my show schedule for 2018 as it stands right now. Shows later in the year will be updated as jury results come back. Or as infrequently as I update the site.

My first show of the year, as always is Baltimore. The show of all shows. It’s really a great creative wakeup call for the spring. The other nice thing is that it happens right after I get back from the Tucson Gem show, which is HUGE creative jazz starter.
Come to Baltimore if you live anywhere in the area. It is a great show. I will be in booth 1504.
I hope to see you soon.
I should have made a New Years resolution to blog more. Though, I probably would have done it a month late!
