I'm so thrilled that my mixed media installation "Cells" will be on exhibit at the Boscom Center for the Visual Arts as part of American Craft Today, which runs September 22 through December 29, 2012.

This prestigious, juried exhibition of fine craft includes one-of-a-kind pieces, and uniquely creative artwork. Approximately 50 craftspeople were selected from across the nation to exhibit baskets, ceramics, decorative and wearable fiber, furniture, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, paper and wood craft objects created by some of America’s most skilled and visionary artists. This year’s juror is Mark Leach, the Executive Director of The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art.

Our finished glass pieces turned out pretty nice. They had to slowly cool over night at the glass studio and I was able to pick them up last night.

Glass Blowing

Today we had a blast at our early morning glass blowing class at the Burchetta Glassblowing Hot Box in Wilmington. I can't wait to pick up our pieces tomorrow morning! Stay tuned...

Yes indeed...

More experimenting

Today it was too rainy to do my encaustics (I work outside), so I started sewing some fabric collages using scraps of canvas that I've been saving for years (nothing goes to waste in my studio). I plan to use these collages as the base for encaustics. I'll build up layers of pigmented wax, then scrape it back off to reveal the textures.
These are about medium in size: around 18" x 24" to 24" x 24".
