Lovely Lady Studio Musings is a magician of the wind. She recycles perfectly delightful items and uses them for her wind chimes and other houseware art. I was pleased to find her entire shop is green earth friendly & we are glad to know her art because it contributes in so many ways. Do Mark This Store In Your Goodie Bag.
~*~THE INTERVIEW: ~*~
[a wispy interview with wind artist, StudioMusings]
Q` what is the windiest place you've been
A` The windiest place I've been would have to be at the Ubehebe Crater in Death Valley, CA. I camped there once as a teen, and as we stood on the edge of the crater, I was sure that I could be lifted by the wind and blown away.
Q` how does wind influence your art?
A` I love the sounds the wind makes, and the movement caused by it. In my art, I try to blend the sounds of my silver ware pieces (chimes) so it is a pleasing melody, and I always put a swivel on the piece so it can turn with the breeze.
Q`what's the most challenging & rewarding part of the art you create?
A' The most challenging part of my art is finding the right piece and rescuing it. I like taking an item that is dirty, dented, mistreated, etc. and clean it up. I might polish it, or paint it, and add embellishments to it. Creating something that is useful, pleasing to the senses, and just plain fun, is truly rewarding. I love to upcycle.
Q`what do you do in life when there doesn't seem to be enough wind (goodness?)
A`We rarely have that problem in Santa Maria, CA. It seems to always be windy. In fact, I've done craft shows where people told me they would love to buy a wind chime, but it is just too windy where they live. But on those rare windless days, I sit back and relax, knowing a windy day is just around the corner.
Q`Tell us about something you've loved, that has blown away.
A` I haven't had anything I loved blow away-yet.
