Fiber and Clay, Together We Play – Shepherd Choir

3 Boy Shepards

Scot and I love working together with our mediums. He first creates the shepherd in clay and then masterly glazes them……I get to be surprised and see what I can come up with to complement them with my yarn……color combinations, and different textures and techniques. We did a series of Shepherds for the Holiday Season……

Ojai Yarn Bombers Flower Power

1000 Flowers

The City of Ojai was abuzz buzz……the bees of Ojai were abuzz buzz……who wouldn’t be with a 1000 flowers dripping from the famous pergola in a stunning array of rainbow colors. Strolling through the pergola gave you beauty, happiness and a joyful giggling heart♥

Pergola 7

Pergola 6

The people of Ojai certainly enjoyed being enveloped by these beautiful flowers. They came in droves and stayed under the pergola for hours……it did what it was supposed to do……give people beauty, give people joy, give people peace……

Pergola 2

On a sadder note……after only three days of this joy, right after Ojai Day ended……for some reason a mob mentality broke out and people of all ages, adults and kids, started tearing the installation down (perhaps for souvenirs) and within an hour it was all gone……down to the last petal……

We choose to remember the beauty and joy it gave to our community in Ojai……

……it sure had a massive impact!

Ojai Art Detour 2014

Detour Gang 2014

We had a blast for the second year in a row participating in the Ojai Art Detour. From the left you see Scot and I, Shelby Harbison and Barbara Crowder. Not in the photo is Sharon Markley. Hundreds of people showed up to share the weekend with us, our art, our home and studios, our animals……and yummy food!

There’s nothing like community……together!
