I’m hosting a fundraiser for Austin Community Steel Drum Band during the Spicewood Art and Wine Trail.  The band leader and two young students will fill the space with the sounds of the Carribean.

Free of Charge, any donation to Austin Community Steel Band will be appreciated.  They are a 501-C3 organization.  Learn more at their site

Come enjoy the trail and support local artists.

Busy day on Saturday, with new trail attendees discovering the magic here on the cliffside and enjoying the Caribe music in the gallery, thanks to Austin Community Steelband for a fun afternoon of steel drum melodies.

Their director, Cecil Francis is a celebrated pan drum master.  He will be the primary player on Saturday and will be joined by two young students. Come enjoy the music, art and glorious wildflowers.  The band will be collecting tips to add to their educational program.  Great Fun!

Spicewood Elementary 5th Grade Field Trip

Each year the 5th Grade comes for a Filed Trip to take a long nature walk, and learn some plant names, see the view from the cliff and collect bits of nature to make a clay tile souvenir from the day. 

They use the bits of nature like stamps, impressing the soft clay slab with a nature design.

I copy each students name on to the back of his tile.  After the first firing I glaze the pieces and they are fired again.  Each student creates a work of art to keep and remember the day on the land.
