A Time of Ending and Renewal / by Melissa Garcia Parry

After a few days of stumbling about tired and befuddled we're starting to catch up on our sleep and recover from the last two months of 2016. We really packed in the shows and markets and are ready for a quieter few months. For us this is time to recuperate and clean up - physically, psychically and literally. We're going to take a little time away to run wild with our dogs on the beach and generate excitement for the new year ahead.

We are hugely thankful that we have completed another year making something like a living from what we enjoy doing. We are thankful for all of you who have come to our markets and shows and purchased from galleries and online. You are essential to our livelihood. We hope to bring new pieces into existence in 2017 that will fill you with a bit of joy.
