Loaded with Stars

It's a popular time of year for stars, They are perfect for gift giving and decorating and hanging on the tree. Nearly everywhere you look in the studio are stars in progress and pieces of more stars ready to be assembled.

The Covey Center Show " Wrapped In Color" opened Friday. We had a good reception, which was fun. 

It's nice to spend time with other artists, like Inez Harwood. As the night went on, it was fun to hear how much effort it took for Inez to create the 3/4 mile long tie dye piece that got her in the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest continuous tie dye piece in the world. Five fire truck hoses to pump up the amount of water needed to tie dye the fabric. Water had to be trucked across two counties to get enough for the 400,000 gallons needed to tie dye that huge amount.

Jeanne decided that we need another copy of  "Aurora - Morning" for the show so we worked on it and got the whole panel cut out and foiled in the last 2 weeks. I was able to solder it for five hours on Friday but only finished half of the back of it when I was soldering it. (No one will ever know (unless they read this)

The show is scheduled to be up through the end of January so there is plenty of time to see it. We plan to be at the reception in January on Fri, Jan 08 from 6 to 9.
