Unique


The Shemer Art Center was having an open house on Saturday with many of it's art instructors doing demonstrations and talking about the classes they offer.  I stopped by to check it out.  I talked to a few of the artists and found two classes that appeal to me.  If I can work them into my schedule, I'll be signing up.  The visit also gave me an opportunity to see what is new around the center.  I loved this unusual planter with the five vessels hanging over a trough of water.  It's very unique.


And, of course I love the beautiful ceramic totems that are scattered throughout the center's garden.  This one is right by the door.  I have a few more shots form here that I'll be posting next week.

I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today.  I'm visiting a city in Italy that isn't on the normal tourist route.

Two beautiful pictures and such an original planter.
Pretty soon you will post a green ivy wall with one of your creations.

Yes, the ceramic sculpture would be of interest to me.

Ceramics are a dream of mine so you've just made me dream on... :-)

Quite an interesting planter, Sharon! And I find the totems intriguing too.

I like the planter but I wouldn't want the upkeep on it. I would take the totem though!

That totem really appeals to me!

I just love creative people and what they create is so wonderful.

The top one is unusual, since water is so precious out your way. The second reminds me of the little rock cairns we've see so often on the trails in Death Valley and beaches of the Olympic Peninsula.

That ceramic totem is a very interesting one.

That totem is spectacular.

The totem is very cool. Makes me think we need something sculptural for our garden. (Aside from our salvaged fireplace surround.)

Love the totem Sharon, but the planter is such a fabulous idea especially for the climate that you and I live in.. I might have to have a think about this :)

The planter definitely is unique; I find the ceramic totem a delightful difference from the traditional style.
