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 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…
Another version of my Seascape Fantasy series is off to find a new home! I took this collection of quirky critters to the wonderful Lily at Art Aspects Gallery, Lismore this morning. Lily took it straight to the shop window!
If you are in the neighbourhood, drop in. Support your local gallery!
This fishy piece was awarded a ‘Highly Commended’ at the recent LCACA small works 8×8 exhibition. The piece features a bunch of fantastic fishy critters more or less in a dreamy fishbowl – however a few of the critters are making a break for it!
The exhibition has since ended, and this piece has been updated and remounted onto a solid timber base. This piece is now at Ferry Park Gallery – if you are travelling up the Pacific Highway and passing through Maclean, pull off the highway and take a break while you check out the Ferry Park Gallery.
This piece is the smallest of my ‘Fantasy in a Fishbowl’ series – just 19cm wide by 14cm deep by 23cm high – priced at $285.00.
The digital edition of Spring 2018 issue of The Flow Magazine (the leading glass journal for the flame-working community) is now out and available on your screens. This is the Nature Issue, and the magazine features articles and galleries of glass artists work with a ‘nature’ theme.
Australian artists are well represented – Kathryn Chaston, Barb Jorgenson and Terri Krahe were all included – well deserved too. Their work is outstanding…
And I’m am delighted that the editors included my Fantasy in a Fishbowl #1. Talk about keeping good company!
