2015: Year in Review

2015: Year in Review

I’m currently hunkered down in a coffee shop (trying to stay warm now that winter has truly arrived) as I try to remember all of the awesome things that happened last year. There were so many milestones this year it was difficult remembering all of them and I had to... read more
What I See

What I See

When I look for images that spark my creative energy, other people sometimes look me like I’m crazy. The most boring piece may appeal to me because I can “see” the glass and visualize what I want to make. Sometimes it is the color combinations, or it could be the flow... read more
Off to Door County

Off to Door County

Back in April at the ACC Show I met the owner of the Plum Bottom Gallery. He bought a good number of panels wholesale to sell in his gallery located in Egg Harbor, Door County, WI. A typical gallery will sell an artists work on a consignment contract. All that means... read more

Cleaning and Organizing, part one

Cleaning and Organizing, part one

Art Crawl is done for the spring. It was an excellent weekend. On top of meeting all the new people, reconnecting with current people and making new friends (all fun aspects of an open studio), one of my favorite and least favorite aspects of Crawl is cleaning out the... read more
Birds on a Wire

Birds on a Wire

This series began last fall with “Fly”, with the idea of creating some very abstract renditions of birds in flight and hanging out on power lines. Copper power lines in the form of tubing and copper channel, with a very understated cinnamon Baroque swirl glass flowing... read more
