These photos are of lights that I made for a very successful show at the Zack Gallery in Vancouver, Feb.-Mar. 2013. I made 14 pieces for the show but didn’t get photos of all, as per my usual way.

I exhibited with Carolyn  Kramer a mixed media painter. Our work complimented each others’ well.

Spring was chosen for the exhibit, Invested, Craft Council of BC, 4oth anniversary.

These iris pods were taken from a few gardens. As I ride my bike I collect plants I can use, my clippers are always in my bike basket.

This light proved to be very popular at the show as did the iris pod light and I made more for commissions.

Botanicals was shown at the Seymour Art Gallery in Deep Cove and sold there. It was also chosen for a regional exhibit at the Shadbolt Centre, April 15-30. I made a new one for this exhibit.
