"You're Late for Tea!" | A Wonderland Tea Table

Around the end of 2016 I went through a spell where my head was FULL of Alice in Wonderland....and, I do mean FULL(er)! I've had so many Ideas on pieces for a collection that I am hoping to release by the end of 2017.

First on my list? 
A freakin' Wonderland tea table! YESSS!

Not just a Wonderland tea table but, a mandala Wonderland tea table with TONS of strange interactions, geometric patterning, texture and color. Words can't even begin to explain how stoked I am about this project.

The journey begins HER!

Burned, Beaded & Upcycled Bohemain Pendulum Clock

     I started working on this clock around the middle of the year and I'm so excited to say that it's nearing completion! I found this pendulum wall clock in a friend's storage building while rummaging through a mound of stuff they were just going to throw out. It wasn't the prettiest thing in the world and wasn't in the best of shape, but it had great bones and tons of I thought I'd give it some good lovin' and see if I could bring it back to life. After hour and hours and hours of work, this is where I find myself with it...

     The outer shell of the clock is pyrographed (wood burned) in an all original, zentangle "lace-like" design and stained in the most vibrant array of colors possible. It features leafy greens, sky blues, passionate purples, punches of pink and pops of oranges and, basically, it's a rainbow! Did I mention that I LOVE rainbows?!
