I have another friend I would like to spotlight in my blog this week. I met Sara Dahmen (www.saradahmen.com) through our writing group. If I were creating a list of modern day Renaissance women, I would have to add her to the list. In addition to being a writer of adult and children’s books, she is also an artist, an artisan, and an entrepreneur. I don’t know how she finds the time to do it all, given she is also the mother of three small children, but she does all this plus is very involved in several organizations related to writing and books. And she is a genuinely nice person to boot.
Some of you may be thinking her name sounds familiar. Sara is the person who, while wearing her artisan metalsmith hat, created a custom cookie cutter for my mom. I don’t have a photo of the cutter yet to share with you, but do have something even better. Below are some photos of the hand-made copper cooking products Sara sells through her company (http://housecopper.com/) as well as through a network (http://www.housekeepercrockery.com/) she formed to include craftsmen selling hand-made cookware in various forms.
If you value quality, hand-made cookware which hearkens back to an earlier century, then I think you will enjoy this. Settle back and admire what can happen when people strive to preserve our past. (Oh, and if you are thinking about Christmas presents, you could do worse than follow a link to one of her websites. Hint to my husband.) I hope you enjoy her work as much as I do.
I write historical fiction, and I invite you to share the journey to published author with me.
