Western Loudoun Artists Studio Tour June 22-23

I hope you can come to ArtSquare (12 Cardinal Park Dr Leesburg) this weekend for the Western Loudoun Artists Studio Tour ( Several of the studio artists will be on hand as well as a few guest artists. This year’s tour has over 60 artists in studios all over Loudoun County. It’s my first studio tour on the East Coast and I’m looking forward to meeting visitors and answering questions.

I’m having a “name the giraffe” contest too! My wall giraffe (see photos below) needs a name and I’m looking for some help. Usually I give my animal sculptures names from favorite relatives, friends, or characters from books and movies. I thought it might be fun to see what other people would name one…so here’s your chance…even if you can’t make the tour, send me your submission of a name here: – until the end of June. If I chose your name, you’ll receive a 12″ giraffe sculpture that I handbuilt (it’s actually coming out of the kiln as I write this). So far, I’ve had some funny – and a couple strange – suggestions.

Better go – I’ve still got some glazing to do…Hope to see you this weekend!
