This little seascape is headed off to Coldstream Gallery at Ulmarra.
Technically, glass has the same molecular structure as a liquid, except that it is frozen in time. Just like these little fishies are preserved under glass!
Henny Penny and friends have been joined by a couple of clown fish – Nemo and friend.
These two are headed for a gallery – contact me here if you would like to have a Nemo of your own!
Blame Joy! She asked me if I could make a glass chicken!
Joy is one of the members at the Lower Clarence Arts and Crafts Association’s Ferry Park Gallery. Joy made me a wonderful crocheted woolen knee rug that has kept me warm all winter. Joy loved the glass fish that I have at Ferry Park, and asked if I could make a glass chicken for her granddaughter’s birthday. That was fun!
The Flow Magazine is out with the 14th Annual Gallery of Women in Glass. I am chuffed that I have been included again! Talk about keeping good company!
Also a big call out to the other Australian artists who were included:-
Apologies to any others I might have missed – and well done to all!
The magic about glass is that it works with light… Light shines through it, reflects from it… Light is bent by glass. Glass loves light!
Put your glass light in a cupboard, and it loses the light, its life, its voice… But put the glass in the light and it sings.
This little seascape fantasy is in a double sided box – glass both sides. Sit it on a window sill where the sun shines in. Hang it from the window frame.
Glass is for light, and light beats darkness any day…
Just listed in my Shop – lively vibrant colours and contrasts with blown hollows!
The main beads are blown hollow glass beads. Hollow glass beads are lighter and the transparent hollows refract and reflect the light off the inner and outer surfaces to add life and sparkle. The satin black hollows have been sandblasted to create a gorgeous contrast in texture.
The necklace also has long tube beads and glass rings over the tube beads and spacers. The main beads are separated with small glass pea beads and seed beads so that the necklace is flexible and supple, so it sits just so and feels great when you wear it.
The matching earrings have forest green and etched satin black beads hanging form sterling silver ear hooks.
