buttons + food = excitement!

as i prepare for the release of SILVER AND ASH, i’m busily constructing all sorts of fun arts and crafts projects.  one of which is the creation of handmade SILVER AND ASH art buttons.  i’m hard at work cutting and trimming and working the lever of the button machine to make little gems like these:

i’m in love with them.  i hope you will be too.  (the photograph doesn’t really do them justice.)

also, i’m working with the fabulous visual artist/ historical gastronomist sarah lohman to create a series of intimate concerts using food and drink to bring alive the songs and stories of SILVER AND ASH through taste, smell, touch, and sight. more on this as location/ dates/ times are nailed down, but the events look to be pretty scrumptious!
