One area of creativity that sort of slipped my mind, is in the category of handy crafts. Hand-made things of beauty also qualifying as art. Thanks to Patricia Hawkenson for submitting photos of her work and offering this reminder. My mother would have wagged a finger at me for forgetting her talents! We will post photos of all artistic crafts here!
PATRICIA HAWKENSON’S STAINED GLASS HANDIWORK
“I have been creating stained glass items, kaleidoscopes, jewelry boxes, and more for over 15 years. Originally, my business name was: Ambiance, but after my retirement from teaching, I changed the name to Expressive Domain to better reflect my attempt to showcase all of my artistic expressions, including designing handbags – and writing! Please consider following my latest efforts by ‘liking’ my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ExpressiveDomain or stop by my online Etsy store at: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ExpressiveDomain“

I have done some stained glass work (mainly panels) and really appreciate the talent and effort you have demonstrated in your work. Beautiful.
Michelle Hed says:
These are beautiful Patricia!
William Preston says:
I’d like to echo that.
Vivienne Blake says:
We have moved from several houses with stained glass features made by us. Now, in a rented house, we have no room either to make or display them, so I really enjoyed seeing your lovely work.
Ellen Evans says:
I love your pieces — 3-D kalaidiscopes. They have wonderful movement and feeling. My favorites are the green box and the neclaces (I do have a weakness for hand crafted Jewelry)
Debi Swim says:
You do beautiful work. I was just looking at your etsy page- wow.
