    1. Nance, glad you liked Margaret's work. They are one of the simpler creations of hers, but she makes them with fine choices of tesserae

  5. O they are stunning. In my ignorance I ask, Does she make the glass too? So the rainbow one, is that her creation? And the iridescent glass of the first, so like the rainbow, rainbow, rainbow of Elizabeth Bishop's poem "The Fish"—a poem about Christ, my mentor Diane Wakoski believes. Much about the wounds, fish (the symbol), etc.

    And yes, please do share a poem. I didn't know you write them.

    1. Ruth ~~~ you are far from the first to ask. No, we do not make our glass. I must correct you on the first one, it is not glass. Margaret rarely uses anything else, but she does dig the iridescence of mother-of-pearl. I one spent quite a bit of time writing short stories and some time writing poems. as of late I feel moved to try my hand at a poem, we will see, we will see ;')

  6. My favorite is the one of mother-of pearl, I sure the tear drop shapes were intentional. It speaks. Thank your for visiting my site.
