New work : Stripes carved out of glass.

This project was in the making since my artist residency in Portland in 2006, time flies. I have finally worked up the nerve to cut, grind, drill and polish this amazing glass.

Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, booth K37

The Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition is Toronto’s first, largest, and longest running outdoor art fair – providing fresh art, fresh faces, in the fresh air since 1961. Attracting an audience of over 100,000 people annually, and showcasing the work of over 350 artists, the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition prides itself on creating an environment which gives artists the chance to interact directly with the public in an informal setting – removing the barriers to access, and dispelling the formality of a traditional gallery or art fair experience.
My booth number is K37, web site here

long term plans

 I have planted hops this spring, setting them up as a decorative fence. The strain is called "Sterling", the closest  North American kind to Czech "Saaz". I will make beer out of these in the fall, I have promised to myself. I got them here, for anyone interested.

edibles are waking up too

most of the perennial edibles survived the witch of a winter and are waking up. Even the blueberry bushes that got ravaged by deer (yes a deer) seem to be recovering.

This years harvest

 Last boil of the year completed. 8 liters of maple syrup harvested, a record so far, yay. Tap my trees for anybody interested in the DIY.
