It's October already! That means I've been working on this book for one year now. So far is has gone through about 5 different editing stages and counting. The following are examples of the quality of some of the images. They will be placed and described in the different sections concerning frit, shielding and backup turning.
Other extensive process shots will be a bit more "bare bones" to quickly convey technical ideas.
I am super honored to be one of five artists taking part in an exhibition at Ken Saunders gallery. "Original Voices" opens Friday, October 7th in Chicago, IL. I am excited to return to my home town to attend the event. The exhibition will showcase select works from my past two years working with glass.
That's all for now! Leave a comment and sign up to receive an email alert each time I post.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend,
I was raised in Calumet City, IL. My professional glassblowing career led me to Phoenix, AZ and the coast of Carlsbad, CA. where I was given the opportunity to teach glassblowing classes. Notes and chalk drawings of different techniques for the students resulted in my current book project.
