Links- Pender and Beyond
Talisman Books & Gallery~Pender Island’s bookstore and more! Talisman displays and sells various sculpture and furniture pieces of mine along with many other amazing artists of Pender Island.
Thistle Rock Forge~Jeri Sparshu and his wife are amazing blacksmiths on Salt Spring Island. He makes all kinds of cool stuff and has started making custom latches and hinges for me now as well!
Lenka’s Way of Lace~Lenka Suchanek is a self-taught lacemaker and lace designer. She works in the centuries old European techniques of handmade bobbin lace and needle lace, bringing them to life in pictures, sculptures and wearable art. Specializing in metal lace, she uses fine wires of copper, bronze, steel, and precious metals to create unique pieces that are traditional and modern at the same time. Lenka’s work has been exhibited around the world, and received awards and recognition for the original approach to the traditional craft. Lenka and I have completed many collaborative projects together and will continue doing so in the future.
Inspirational Village~This is my wife Wendi’s blog, and it is wonderful! (OK I might be a bit biased…but I dont think so) It is truly inspirational, covering topics like natural building, poetry, home schooling, and fibre arts. She has a way with words, and a good eye for composition. She loves to inspire through sharing, and I think she has done just that.
