Almost Done with This Work of Art

New art work here This one going as part of a collaborative work with Mother Artists at Work. Saw blade art work of 10 different artists being assembled as one work of art for an invitational art competition. With 2 of my fellow MAWs, Catherine Bell Smith and Cyndi Bellerose, we created a work of art from the art of 10. I am exited to share the final work after our opening.

First we went to the scrap yard. Our second annual trip for this project.

We distributed saw blades to our fellow MAWs, ARTed them up, and cut through some metal.

We had a skeletal structure made. We assembled all the blades into one cohesive totem.

The final work is now installed at Columbus Metropolitan Library, the main library. Columbus Invitational Arts Competition 2013

Garden Troll Enjoys Handmade Glass Art

While he spends most of his time in the darkness under a bridge, this troll enjoys stepping into the sunshine to view the handmade glass garden art of Horkover Glass LLC.  See glass art here too More art this way, and visit Horkover  on FB.

This handmade glass yard ornament has brought a smile to this trolls face!
Glass yard art is all the rage with the fairies up-top, this little ornament has enticed the troll from under a leaf out into the daylight.

One last glass creation for this fella to see before heading back to the bridge to sleep out the rest of the day.

7-8-13 Blowing glass/Live Glass blowing Demonstration

Blowing glass  I will be demonstrating glass blowing for the visitors of the Franklin Park Conservatory from 12 to 3 on Sunday July 8th. I love to blow glass. Blowing glass is challenging, physical, and creative. It's an amazing feeling to pinch into hot pliable molten glass that then turns solid and keeps that shape I just made.
