Cheers to a new year of glass making! Looking back 2019 was a good year of glass making: Splash received 1st place at the Woman Made Mid-West Open in Chicago, Sweet Tooth sold within 10 min of the opening at Vandalia Glassworks while the person who first wanted to buy it missed out when thinking it over, Flame Thrower went to the MN State Fair with FOCI, Dance Your Glass Off at Corning with Laura Donefer helped me grow not only in skills and knowledge but in being confident and embracing my wild in my work, and I received a new McKnight grant from Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council to work on the glass pieces for Disappearing Girl: exploring the myths and realities of teen girls and mental health.
In 2020 I look forward to diving in on my glass sculptures and painting for Disappearing Girl, finishing the parts for a piece on the symbiotic relationship between us and nature, learning casting and sand blasting, enjoying exploring more with texture and color patterns and spending time with my family and friends. I wish everyone a life full of color, peace, love and joy in 2020 and beyond.
