Sorting Limpets

Monday, October 30, 2006

Want to come on over to my place and help me sort limpets?


I haven't looked at this whole collection since the kids were pre-teen. The shells are jewels; and I love the endless variety and beauty (just like people).

"There is nothing that makes its way more directly to the soul than beauty."
Joseph Addison
(1672-1719 British essayist, poet, and dramatist)

What'r' U gonna do w' the shells?

I'm going to make the larger striped limpets into surreal "palm" trees with bamboo trunks and marble "coconuts". They will be part of a small sculpture which includes an alien with a small half-marble stuck in his belly. As for the rest of the vision, you will have to wait and see the picture.

remember....you asked!

Hi Richard, I went to your website and am in awe of your beautiful lamps and your humble gratitude towards God for your fine gift of artistry.

Thank you so much for stopping by. You are an inspiration.

To Richard's friend:
I used to live right off Lake Shore Dr. too!...but I forget the street name. I hope Richard sees these messages, but I can't contact him because he left an anonymous comment. Darn.
