NEW STUFF JOURNAL what I do each day

A secret peek at the new member of Nepenthe Studio.

 It’s Saturday, and I’m heading out to my studio to fabricate some metal legs for upcoming critters and sculpture. I’ll have to get busy taking fotos of the fruits of my labours very soon. They are piling up.

I’m hoping to have some time to make a hat a little later today.

or maybe some mitts or fingerless gloves

or neck warmers

or cowls

or slippers

or ?


 These past several days I’ve been busy making "critters. 7 are finished now, the latest being a Blue Spotted Hereford cow. Pictures will follow.

I’m getting impatient with the weather.


 Today is Saturday, and I’ve decided to create some felt sculpture. This is a passion of mine! Creatures, critters, monsters (both scary and cute), fantabulous animals and birds; anything I can dream up, I make. It’s like going on a holiday.

I won’t be adding pictures of these new sculptures just yet, but I will tell you, they can FLY.


This page is a JOURNAL of my creations as they are born. I usually try and design and make at least one piece of art a day. My "NEW STUFF" page will open the door to the future of NepentheStudio +HatTrickHats. It will give you a "heads up" as to what to expect from me at any upcoming shows and events. I will still post my work occasionally on FaceBook and Instagram, but more a more complete peek, X MARKS THE SPOT! You’re always welcome.
