I am so excited to be back to working on sculptures again. Late summer and early fall are times when I make functional pieces for holiday sales and while I appreciate the money they bring in, it is not where my heart lies. I created some blanks recently to blow out into parts for a four piece sculpture I am working on. Each of the 4 sculptures is compromised of several glass pieces combined together. I am working on the last two to complete the work. Here are some pictures of the blanks and some other pieces that will be combined. When I complete the whole piece I will do another post…until then enjoy the colors and textures. My heart is happy! Peace, love and joy to you this holiday season.
Sharing this video at my opening reception to help people understand a little more about how flame worked glass beads and blown glass are created. The video shows clips of me making beads, adding a color bit, doing a bit wrap, raking glass to create a feathered effect, and hand drawing on glass. Additionally photos of finished pieces show how the work turns out in the end.
