tictac sent me some prototypes of her new lemon squeezer which she has helpfully accessorized for American audiences. Also her Xmas greeting. Also her Georgia O'Keeffe stamp. And all imbued with her characteristic wryness and precision.

Let's get the granular view.

Thank you, Ptrzia. My life in Santa Fe coincided briefly with Georgia's tenure on the planet. Though our paths never crossed I'm told she collected my work. (And then disposed of it properly according to IUOMA guidelines).

i almost visited Santa Fe many years ago.... it's a place in my mind, also because i love native contemporary silversmith works, as i am a silversmith too, you have wonderful artists there. a part from David, Georgia... :-)

You need to visit Santa Fe, Ptrzia. Tons of original O'Keeffe's just walking around.

WOWnderful! what a treasure Patti found! in addition the presentation is unique as her work. i love Georgia's work. years ago a comprehensive retrospective, with the cooperation of the O'Keeffe Museum of Santa Fe, took place in Munich, it was such a treat to see her work 'live'....

Ptrzia, dig this...Patti found this piece of ephemera in a box of stuff since I blogged this. A Georgia O'Keeffe First Day Souvenir Pack. I'm not sure my scans make it clear but the package opens like one of her flowers.
