arts exchange with Grego




(exquisite table hand made by Greg Hounsell)
So Greg and Suzette come down from Canada to swap pots for woodwork and jewelry. We have this little spot next to the bathroom sink, and Greg made a rather extraordinary and humbling table to fit it. Humbling because he made that for me, and I just gave him some pots? It is an amazing little table and has a cute turned knob for the drawer.
Suzette did the same: some jewelry for some pots. Again, quite an exchange...

Hey - that fits perfectly, doesn't it? I see spike (or is that Emily) likes it too!

Where's Suzette??? Her jewelery is very pretty.
