Every August, I have the honor and privilege to teach something at the South West Area Turners convention. This year, fused glass jewelry with decals, zentangle, Texas flag acrylic panel, fused glass dichroic jewelry, and a painted tree on panel. Can't wait to see old friends and make new ones. Some samples
After attending the Missouri Botanical Garden glass show, I was inspired to try some flowers. Biggest challenge, again, was finish. Found copper, found anchors, washers and screwdriver. Wa-la! Would still like to get some leaves attached.
Learning and living Alice Gebhart techniques. These pictures are before final firing. Anxious to see final result and try some new hanging techniques.
An experiment in enamel colors. Fall trees with oranges, yellows and red with old tree trunks. Spring with green leaves. The green is not a 'spring ' green but a 'summer' darker green. The pieces are 4" w x 8" h and 6 layers thick. Will be mounted in wood diptych frame.
The window light increases the sense of depth in the art.
In working to gain more insight to fused glass, I've found my fascination with trees again. Here is a new one, 10"x8" in a stand. Might place in frame with no back to be hung in a window.
Ready to sell....ready to buy? My body of work is growing. Some abstract in antique frames that are gorgeous on a window sill or on a mantel. Free flowing landscapes in stands or thick, 6 layers image of trees, or people or the lonely park bench. Pick one.
Wonderful class at American Glass Supply in Fort Worth. Learned so much. Can't wait to try more. The dog is from Peter McGrain class in Florida.
Finished vitri fusaille lady done at Peter McGrain workshop held at AAE Glass in Cape Coral FL. If you are interested in fused glass or stained glass, and want to go to another level, take Peters class. He is an awesome instructor. Fun class. So much information. Florida is good too!
its a glorious day! Birds a chirping! Sunshine and a cool breeze. A great day to feel loved and to give live. Don't let the opportunity pass you by.
Learning about fused glass. Inspired by Murano Glass in Venice.
