Woo-hoo! My handmade shop is finally opened: McGo Studio. My current inventory is made up of a series of art tiles made by my family: My aunt (the oh-so-talented sculptor who created the masters), my Dad (maker of the molds and tiles), and myself (sanding, buffing, and patina work). We have birds:
Kitties, Horses, and Insects:
Boats and Babes:
And I have to tell you how delighted I was to receive an e-mail from CaitlinSainio last night telling me she had included our copper cockatoo tile in her beautiful treasury!
Here is the direct link to the treasury:
I hope to add some woodworking and upcycled mixed media works to the shop over the next few months, but first I still have work to do on the art tile part of the shop, as I want to offer the option for simple framing and attaching hangers to the backs of the tiles. (Most of them don't have hangers because they were originally created more for installation in bathrooms and kitchens, but we found there was a lot of interest in using them for movable art). I also have several more boxes of tile inventory to bring back from my parents house in Texas, so this should keep me busy for a while :)
This weekend I'm either going to work on the shops, clean house, and work in the yard, or play hooky and go backpacking. What are you up to? Have a great weekend everyone!
