Two Paths

This is one of two new pieces I have on display at Art on Broadway. It is a shallow platter that can either be a display piece or functional serving-ware. 

The show opens Friday, December 3. See the details in the post below.

The photo was taken with my phone. Glass is always challenging to capture in a photo....this one was no different.  I hope to replace it with a better photo eventually.

The glass is a beautiful red with sparkling adventurine green accents.  This is part of my series of Wanderings-themed work. I am fascinated with how we move about in our world, the various paths we select for ourselves and those who choose to join us in our journeys.

I have lived in Oregon since I was 2 years old. My parents each immigrated to the U.S. after WWII. Their paths were very different but they landed in the same place, met each other, got married and then moved again to the other side of America. They joined other family who had made the trek out west before them.

Life is filled with many journeys: school, life, love, work, children, travel. What is the journey you are on now?
