We have been collaborating artists our entire married lives. Our work is always evolving. The experiences we share, or individually participate in, become a part of what we create. Bruce photographs and throws pots and I paint and create jewelry and other objects from precious metals. Bruce's photos are sometimes the inspiration or reference for my paintings and often times I sculpt and carve into his pottery. The results from our combined knowledge and skills becomes something beautiful that we enjoy sharing. Enjoy.

The Villa...http://www.fattoriapoggioasciolo.com/

Our Tuscan Villa was beautiful and the couple who owned it were great. Simonetta and Aldo were very available and hands on to help the whole time. Each Sunday evening, Simonetta and family would prepare a beautiful meal for those of us who wanted it. The meals were well worth the extra cost each week. Beautifully prepared, served, included fine wine or beer, appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Usually a three or more hour event!

Formal Dinning Room

Vessel for Olive Oil from long ago. Unused now.

Some Sundays the Meal was served outside and into the evening, under the Tuscan Moon!
