In the spring spirit of change and transformation, I have some news to announce. I am now a registered horticultural therapist (HTR) –hooray! And, I am currently in a graduate school counseling program. This all means that I have had to scale way down on glasswork, however, I am not giving it up! After reflection and reassessment, I have decided to close my Etsy shop, to focus on local sales and festivals. Stay tuned for opportunities to catch me at upcoming art festivals.
I will be at the Clark County Recycled Arts Festival for my 6th year! The festival is Saturday June 24th & Sunday June 25th. This may be my only festival this summer. Click the image above for more information.
I recently received some textured glass in my scrap bin that I collect on a regular basis from Alpine Glass Service in Portland, OR. I have found that this glass does not mix well with the other scrap-glass that I receive, however, it does fuse well to itself. I cut and layered two rounds of this beautiful textured glass and fused them over a drop-ring mold to create the candle-holder that you see below.
