I am very exited that Silver Sage Trading gift shop at the High Desert Museum in Bend, Oregon is carrying my leaf necklaces and native plant platters.  Here is a photo of the lovely display created by the gift shop staff:

The museum is also getting ready to host a traveling exhibit about the plants of John Muir in April:

Nature’s Beloved Son: Rediscovering John Muir’s Botanical Legacy
Opening Saturday, April 20, 2013
John Muir’s passion for the nature and beauty of plants significantly influenced his drive to preserve wilderness. This exhibition traces his travels, and presents vivid images and specimens of the actual plants that Muir preserved for all time. A traveling exhibition from Exhibit Envoy.  (Information from www.HighDesertMuseum.org .)

You can get a sneak peak at the lovely botanical photographs that are part of this show at the following link:

Spring will be here soon — bringing lots of fresh plants to press into clay!

The bowl and the platter successfully made it through the drying stage, the bisque firing, the glazing process and the final glaze firing.
