My class today was just two. But what a fun duo it was. Diane Rabideau-Wise (fellow CoRK artist) and Francesca Tabor-Miolla (SoMMA artist) came to learn and play. We had a fun time and they asked LOTS of questions. I showed them some of the things they could do to make it more mixed media-like and they were intrigued! We might even arrange a Society of Mixed Media Artists series of classes – which would be amazing!
Have I mentioned I do custom/commissioned work? I would love to translate your idea into glass.
I’ve reopened my Etsy shop. Here’s the mini version for your buying pleasure.
Here is the finished piece that was an anniversary gift today:
I am a glass enthusiast. I also like to make connections, facilitate improvement, help people out. Put these two things together, schedule a meeting and the next thing you know (hopefully), you have a group of like minded people hanging out together.
This Saturday I’ve asked several glass people I know to come and hang out and talk shop at the Southpoint Marriott off of JTB. Not everyone knows each other, so we’ll have an opportunity to make new connections, learn about different styles and approaches, talk about our goals for our craft. Eventually, I’d like to bring in guest instructors to further our knowledge and skills. I want to spread the creation, love and appreciation of glass art here in Jacksonville, FL.
One of my dreams/goals is for our community to be so strong here, that Bullseye Glass Co. will open a resource center here. I think we have a lot to offer: great artists, JU’s glass program, UNF, FSCJ & JU’s art programs, a great city, natural surroundings, everything!
Please contact me if you want to be a part something that could be really special. It may take a while, but we can get there.
Fresh out of the slumping kiln, ready for delivery. My first plate class’ work. You can do beautiful work too. Check my class schedule for times and dates.
