An example of Jess Larson's chalkware
Jess Larson, fine studio art professor here at UMM, has (as she puts it) “Dot-commed herself”, setting up shop at

It’s a nice, elegant site featuring photographs of her art. She used Shutterbug to build the site.

No replacement for the mighty WordPress for managing dynamic content, but quite good for what it does.

    Jess’s girdles are definitely quite wonderful. Seeing a large set of them on display at the PRCA last year was really wonderful.
