Latest fun purchase
Oh how I love Raku fired pieces! Since my October Bead Journal Project page I have been on a quest for more of it and as luck would have it I found some wonderful stuff! My search led me to an exceptional artist - Lisa Peters of Lisa Peters Art. I found her on Etsy and recently ordered and received several items, a few of which are pictured here. Check out her website - not only does she create some amazing pieces in clay, her photography is outstanding.
They are beautiful! These are pictures I snapped - click on the photos for an enlarged view.
Some are flat backs, some have shanks. All are beautiful. I can hardly wait to incorporate one of these wonderful little works of art into my beading.
Leaves of Grass
This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body - Walt Whitman
