I'm often asked what inspires me. Many things actually, but this was a wonderful creative moment this last Fall, inspired by the “gatherings” of Dr. Louise Minor and her husband, Dr. Robert Fischer. When I went for my biannual eye exam, Dr. Minor gave me a sack of chanterelles. Their colors and shapes were totally fascinating and the old copper pot just seemed to compliment them on the larger plate.
