SEASON OF TURTLES

This time of year on the islands, we begin to prepare for the return of our beloved sea turtles.  It's amazing how the mama sea turtle swims thousands of miles each year, but always finds her way "home" to the same beach to lay her eggs.  What a special gift we beachcombers have--to help protect these eggs and to ensure each tiny hatchling is able to make its way to the ocean, swimming against the odds to find its way into the sea!

In honor of these inspiring turtles, I have created turtle pins and pendants this year.  Each one has its own color and personality!

ALCOHOL INKS WITH SARINDA JONES!

ALCOHOL INKS CLASS

Friday, May 29th

During this fun over-the-top color and glass class, students will be painting pre-fired glass pieces using Sarinda's color saturated alcohol inks techniques. The resulting free form images, on glass, will be transformed into small sculptural pieces by the days end. We will provide a stand for your artwork, so that you can go home with a gorgeous piece of original glass art that is ready to set up and show off to family and friends. Students will also be able to try alcohol ink painting techniques on canvas and other media, allowing for a full range experience in Sarinda's dynamic world of alcohol inks.  EMAIL ME FOR FURTHER DETAILS!

MAY 2015 WORKSHOPS WITH SARINDA JONES!

I have a guest fused glass artist coming to my studio to share her techniques with us! SARINDA JONES will be teaching us about Alcohol Inks and Powders in two workshops over one weekend in May. On Friday, we will have a one day workshop where we explore the watercolor like effects that can be obtained with ALCOHOL INKS and fused glass. This will be a fun exploratory session, where you will quickly see wonderful results with Sarinda's easy to grasp techniques. On Saturday and Sunday, Sarinda will give us a taste of the technical mastery for which she is known world wide. We will be exploring colors, patterns and textures through an exploration of our local beach, and an exploration of fused glass POWDERS. Sarinda will show us the technical basics of working with powders, and expose us to the incredible visual effects that you can master by layering powders and understanding simple chemical reactions. Guaranteed to be filled with "Oh my gosh!" moments, this class is such a special treat that I will be taking it along side you - I can't resist the chance to learn all I can from Sarinda!!!

THE RUBY HEART

RUBY RED DICHRO MOSAIC WALL PIECE

This richly colored glass art work features one of my signature Dichro Mosaic hearts. The fused glass panel is mounted on a silver mirrored background and accented with an opulent gold frame. Color and light radiates from every inch of this love filled statement!
