Out of the Garden and Into the Studio

We truly had a gorgeous summer here in Massachusetts. The gardening season is winding down and I’m looking for ways to preserve an abundant harvest of peppers this year. These Anchos all came from one plant- hard to believe as I don’t usually get even three peppers from a sweet pepper plant, never mind dozens from a Chile pepper plant. My son grilled a dozen last night so I could skin, seed and freeze them for the winter. All went well so I’ll finish them off tomorrow. If anyone has a recipe for stuffed Poblanos, I’d love to hear from you!

The bowl is the second piece in my new Glass Tapestry series, inspired by all of the lovely shades of ripening peppers. I’ll be bringing the whole collection to the Paradise City Arts Festival In Northampton over Columbus Day Weekend.

Also, sending props to the woodworkers in the family- the table in the picture is a joint effort by my husband and son, fabricated from reclaimed antique American Chestnut flooring.
