This shed is a work in progress and I know that Sherri looks forward to many more classes that include her garden shed. Check out Steve's website for more on Flying concrete. I love his "wavy curvy" construction style. He lives in San Miguel and offers classes there. I hope to visit someday.
Sherri's studio is located in Bell Buckle TN. I LOVE it there! I've had the opportunity to hang out there a couple of times and I know I will go back. Eclectic, arty, and down home. You never know who you will meet and I guarantee you will love them all. This trip I finally got to meet J.L. Nippers a cool folk artist living in the hills of Tennessee. I wanted to buy a piece of art from him and ended up with a couple. Brought me home a lime green gator and a tree full of Blackbirds. That's not the best part. I spent 3 hours with him and his wife. They are the sweetest folks you'll ever meet. I just got a Christmas card from them! They been married for 52 years!
I could go on and on. Maybe another day! Enjoy

Telescopus – by Dominic Johns
I had the pleasure of meeting Dom at the 2008 SAMA conference held this past March in Miami. From Parramatta Park, Australia, Dominic is just a great guy and definitely passionate about everything he does, as you can tell by his loving embrace of his newest work.
Upon completion this is what Dom has to say: Telescopus is in and I’m feeling very happy now. This project has been approx 1000 hours to bring to fruition and now I’m ready for the next one. Moving the work was a tense experience, but we managed to do it without breaking anything. So get down to the Cairns Esplanard 'nard’ opposite 181 The Esplanade and check it out. The cut face glows in the dark!

This mosaic border recently completed by Clara Nelson of Palm Springs, CA is sure to be the focal point of the the newly finished bar-b-que. The project is located in Flagstaff, AZ. Clara used the local local flora as inspiration. The sunflowers and aspen leaves, pine cones, and the phases of the moon from left to right. She used Cinca Unglazed Porcelain, half marbles and dicroic glass for some bling.
I can smell steaks for years to come!
