    1. Thanks, Lea. It's hard to imagine what patterns the pinwheel would have in advance, isn't it?

    2. Thanks. The sculpture in addition to the pottery has little pieces that are made from several monotypes, cut into small curved pieces and sewn together into a 3 dimensional cup shape.

  13. Hi there - you live a great part of the world - I spent a week in this area many years ago - even got to Forks before it was famous.

    I dont know how people have the patience to do the quilts. I think that the tree in my picture has grown through a loop of old chain, rather than the chain being put about a tree. The chain seemed much older than the tree.

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne.

  14. I like it here, but Australia is so exotic, I've always wanted to go there. That would be interesting, a tree growing up through a chain by accident. Some of my trees have branches that cross and they end up growing together.

    1. Thanks, Jay. The Platycodon has been in a bad place but finally decided this year to get tall and bloom. It was quite a surprise.
