Weaving glass....REALLY?

I call this piece spiritual gridlock. I was talking with a friend a while back and she was talking about her spiritual practice. As she described her spiritual journeying I began to see glass imagery. It was a great conversation that inspired me to finally try weaving glass. It was a little frustrating but in the end, very satisfying!

I look forward to playing with this process a little more!

Celebration of Art 2010!

We had a sizable crowd (approximately 600!). Sales were brisk for some artists and less so for others. These types of sales/exhibits are tricky. Sometimes very talented artists don't sell and we all are left wondering why?

We'll be exploring the possibility of diversifying our venues and perhaps adding more shows. Different Sales attract different customers, so I think the exploration will continue.

I was pleased with my sales, especially since I had limited new stock. In addition to sales I also received a few commissions. With luck I will complete them in the next week.

  Pictured are a couple of views of my booth.
