On the subject of community. I keep commenting on the importance of community; that we all work together no matter how individual we are.
The photograph is of a glass paper weight I just made at chronicle glass studio (www.chronicleglass.co.nz). A gift I received from my Mum.
My thanks to two communities: my family, Mum and Dad for the gift, my sister and her husband for the lift of hospitality; all, the gift of love.
And to the chronicle glass studio people for the gift of helping me make this. Their sharing of the gifts of passion and skill through the artisan history of the glass made object.
