  1. always such a joy to visit this blog, so many good things to investigate…
    Love the Katy Hackney piece… reminds my of a music box with dancers on top (not to mention the bamboo base reminding me of my grandfather’s turned & carved bamboo jugs & cups)

  2. All the way in California, too bad this is gorgeous (wood) work.
