While Barbara Walter’s portfolio is brimming with a variety of rings that incorporate moving parts (architectural, toy, bearing bears, race rings), necklaces, vessels and other finely crafted metal wonders, I was drawn to the collection of rings that are powered by gears to create movement in each ring.
Sometimes life feels like a Carousel Ride, an Amusement Park and a Three Ring Circus all rolled in to one and that’s certainly what it feels like in my little corner of the world right now so this collection of rings hit my funny bone at just the right time. Kudos to Walter for making this fan smile with her imaginative gear rings.

I should be a magician. I am certainly getting the hang of disappearing from DAM, aren’t I? Two weeks ago I went to see my mom for a short visit but it quickly became a visit of a different kind. Soon after I arrived an unexpected trip to the hospital for her resulted in a several-day hospital stay. She is now home resting comfortably and I am with her, where I will remain indefinitely. I have access to my computer again and will continue my work from here.
I apologize for another interruption to the daily flow of DAM posts just when I thought I was on a roll again. However, I’m pretty sure you will agree that Mama comes first!
