Living in our new reality has been interesting. In fact, interesting is my word of the year. Creating art is one of the most interesting and important things we can all do now...maybe not all of us, but some. Creating is good for the brain. I think it can help most of us living in complete horror and shock at what is happening in our country. We create groups and art and resistance and hope and whatever we need to do to keep our freedoms. And it helps keep everything interesting.
So what have I been up to since the last post? Of course making glass and teaching classes. We've been working on All That Remains Glass and getting the word out. Making new samples (thanks Frank, Spencer and Vinnie) to put into the world. Check out a few of them.
I recently produced a show of glass pieces that recruited some of my artist friends, and had them trying out Colorline Glass Paints. I love them, by the way. The show comes down in two days...so much for my promotion machine, hahaha...and it's at the Last Bookstore, downtown. Actually it's at the Spring Arts Gallery upstairs. Andrea Bogdan, one of the talented artists that is part of the Spring Arts Collective hosted the show, as well as painted four pieces. Other artists in the show include, Zoe Topsfield, Gwen Freeman, Kelly Thompson, Baha Danesh, Mary Jean Mallman, Stuart Rapeport, Manny Montion Sr., Brian Mallman, Ted Meyer, Anna Stump, Jenny Loi, Jaime Englebrecht, Calvin Mallman, Dash Mallman, Tiffanie Taylor, Ester Pescher, and me. I can't wait to produce more of these shows.
Check my classes page for new and exciting classes. We're adding Beginning Glass Blowing II for those who have taken the first class and are interested in expanding your skills. Look for the first one in March.
