Over the past year, I have developed a process resulting in a unique line of handmade jewelry and a feature in Belle Armoire Jewelry Magazine. This is a short how-to article I wrote about the idea, process, supplies and tips that I use to create lava and glass objects. Follow the link to see more! Hot Glass & Stone
Presenting Art Fair on the Water…
I will be showing a 63 piece installation of “Promise” in this unique venue on the water in Ft. Lauderdale. *Tickets are still available to attend the show* This event is not to be missed, please share with your friends.
This August, I am spending 3 weeks assisting a friend at a school called Bild Werk in Frauenau, Germany. This class is led by Anne Petters and is entitled Hot Printing. We are using flat plaster and silica molds, carving away material and filling the negative spaces with glass powder. The entire mold is then covered with clear frit and fused in a kiln. Some students are choosing to form or slump these pieces in a second firing, others are bring the flat mold up to forming temperature and manipulating the print hot using tweezers. Plenty of safety gear is involved and has made for some funny pictures. The class is having a great time and this village and facility are so wonderful. I look forward to continuing to work with this technique when I return home and hope to come back again someday! Below is an example of my work using this technique. Better pictures to come…
This is the first class that I will be teaching at Crealdé School of Art in Winter Park, FL this fall. Stay tuned for the updates that will be available this summer. This pendant is also a new addition to my Etsy Shop.
