Sake' Sets

Hello to all of you who frequent this blog. I recently experienced artist block which was far from having ideas bottled up, or even the lack of motivation to create, but more accurately finding nothing very interesting to share... that is until now. I had lunch with a friend today who asked if I kept up my posts on Apartment Art and my response was that I had slowed down quite a bit. He articulated that he likes to find small artistic pieces whenever he travels because of the ideas that he has read from this blog. I was inspired by his comments so I wanted to thank  Elijah for the positves!

Recently, I was shopping at a Japanese market called Marukai. Frequenting the household items I found this sake' glass set with a sumo motif. They were very unique and I knew that they would be wonderful conversation pieces for dinners with friends who enjoy Japanese rice wine or sake'. There are five different poses by five different wrestlers.

The glasses are about 1.5"in height even though the photos make them appear larger.

People and Events

It's been a while since I've updated this blog mainly because things have been hectic. The only art that I've have had time for is taking photos. Here are some fun pictures at a local carnival.
