Though not quite for the faint of heart, the group show going on at Modern Eden Gallery right now is definitely worth checking out for those who can attend.

I was gifted a Conjurer’s Kitchen hand-sculpted white chocolate raven skull by the lovely and talented Tonya Hurley…it’s too beautiful to eat. I keep it on display.
