Made Special for Habilitat in Spring, 2017.
The Hawaiian lieu lye’s beneath,in a circle. Symbolizing affection. The volcano landscape circles the piece above, radiating red energy emerges from the volcano, circling a silhouette of two hands (a photo of my hands). A butterfly is released. A new beginning has begun. An Orb
The Eagle rises above, as each patient’s intention is set to do the same. I was actually thinking the Eagle would fly around the piece. As I was struggling communicating with the team. (It took 3 people to make this piece as is.) The fact is, the Eagle rising above is perfect. Each patient has that goal. To rise above and be the best they can be. Some things are meant to be. (Meant to be does not mean Easy.)
The team: Sheila Morley, Marc Vandenberg, Louie Sanchez

Working on paper weights….glass stones, heavy subjects…
Visit my website to see some of the paperweights.
Bobby takes a bow radiating….
These tributes to Bob Weir are inspired by this photograph by Gabriel Jones. Only 10 marble/paperweights and 10 pendants will be made with this image. These pieces will be available at the website. He is an amazing photographer and he also sells some really beautiful tie dyes. Move me brightly He represents some Master tye dye makers. And he has a Rad marble available for sale. Totally impressed.
Love and light, and thanks for reading my blahg! Sometimes I like to share this crazy art experience….One day at a time, and all good things in all good time.

I would like to take a moment and officially try to push the start button on my website (even though it is still under construction). I am new, my life is new. As some of you know, last July My Husband, Ronald Nathe Morley, passed away unexpectedly. I am so sorry for our loss. Myself and my children are healing. Ron saved 5 lives by donating his organs. He hybridized many lily flowers we have yet to see be born. My family and I will be growing his babies to full maturity, naming them after him, and most likely donating to the lily society some bulbs each year.
I am truly Honored to have spent 1997 to 2013 with Ronald Nathe Morley. I am looking forward to sharing his art with you from time to time. (images here are of his art) I am also stoked to collaborate with his art and mine. (This pendant photo below is in progress fusing his art onto glass) Stay tuned for the journey! As I venture back into selling my Art and living this life, thank you for being part of it!
This world is full of amazing people! We are here for each other. It is unbelievable how many people have extended peace, love, generosity,heart felt thoughts……I can’t say Thank you enough for the generosity of others. Thank you! YOU!

The Running man murrini from 2008! The ends of the pull. The big pieces! The idea – Where will we go from here? The whole Idea of having to get the hell out of here when the earth is no longer….This is the last marble I made with the murrini slices. I did sell some of it to other Artist’s, and I do have a few chips left (keepers). I am taking this one with me to an Art show this weekend in Bloomfield hills, MI. at the Unitarian church (November 3, 2012).
My inside scoop…Lately it has been difficult to really define what is going on with my art. To put it bluntly, I would rather make art then spend time selling it. Not a whole lot is being listed for sale on line this year. (I do expect a few listings toward the end of November…..I really need to hire help with that.) So, I make art, and put it in boxes. Send some off to Galleries… I practice new ideas and try to perfect them. I produce large amounts of mistakes, and work that is not quite there. Sometimes I doubt that my work will ever get there, or find there…..I am not sure I even know where there is these days. Art is a lifetime commitment!
The bottom line!! Come see my work. Come see it in person at a show, or go to the gathered art gallery in Toledo.
Thank you for taking the time to check in.
