I had the marvellous opportunity this last week to take several wire-working classes at The Alaska Bead Company from Dallas Lovett, the amazing designer and teacher. He is a soft spoken, calm teacher who makes everyone feel that they can "get it" and create his beautiful designs....and we could! I enjoyed getting to see his current work, and to get glimpses of his new directions. I find it very inspiring to see how such accomplished artists process the influences around them into something that has never existed before.
I had to walk to my own bassoonist, of course, so I worked in different wires and colors, but I got some items finished during class.
AND.......a couple I didn't quite get finished! (But I will, promise!)
