studio update

In The Crystal Palace has some good news: Robin sold two of his assemblages!!! Here's a look inside his busy studio:

Robin is currently working on a new piece about a strange and mysterious presence that lurks below the surface of a Victorian tidal pool.

Kym is in the process of adding more work to the shop and is finishing up two new pieces about Edgar Allan Poe and Emily Dickinson. We recently took a trip to our local Home Depot and bought wood for the frames.

Here's a peak inside Kym's studio. It may appear to be less cluttered than Robin's studio, but that's mainly due to the way the photo is cropped. We both need more space! She started beading the doll dress over the weekend.
