I cannot remember a time that I didn't create! I started at an early age drawing, making doll clothes, stuffed animals for bazaars, sewing clothes,pottery, ceramics,sculpting, painting,woodworking, tole painting,quilting,embroidery, stained glass and fused glass. While exploring my Mohawk heritage I learned how to do Iroquois raised (embossed)beadwork, loomed beadwork, and used leather to make moccasins.
I guess my 'melting' experiences first started a long time ago when I used to melt my brothers' old 78's over cans in boiling water to make bowls! (Sorry John and Larry!) Now that I am melting glass, I am excited every time I open the kiln, whether it's a candle shelter, coasters, etc or jewellery!
On a more personal level, I am an avid reader and geocacher, along with my 'geosheltie' . I make my Inukshuks specifically for cache swag...
