The Call of Cobalt

Handmade in Cobalt Blue

When you see that unique shade of cobalt blue captured in glass, do you feel like you’re about to fall into an ocean? I think it would be warm and clear and full of exciting marine life. Cobalt blue glass is much better than a crystal ball.

What do you see?

Unforgettable Red



If Nigella Lawson is remembered for all time by just one recipe, it will probably be Slut Red Raspberries in Chardonnay Jelly. The dessert is rumored to be even more surprising (in a delicious way) than the name.

That adjective is certainly interesting though. It cleverly makes it impossible for you to forget what the dish is called. Presumably, it is meant to imply intensity or seductiveness – all good qualities in a dessert.

What do you think?

The Gray Inukshuk

Inukshuk Sculpture, Nanaimo

In some parts of the world, the ocean is never a beautiful aqua blue. In fact, sometimes it’s downright dingy. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be beautiful anyway.

And what better backdrop for a rock sculpture than moody gray?
