Stained Glass Brightens the Winter Day

I recently took a slight detour from fused glass jewelry and decorative pottery to begin working on stained glass. Nothing extremely ambitious yet, as I am honing my soldering skills.  Yesterday I created a simple indoor/outdoor sun catcher held together with twine and Lake Ontario driftwood.  Although it needs a bit of tweaking, I feel inspired to create more of these!

Today I went to a local treasure, Sunshine Glassworks, to browse their vast selection of stained and fusable glass.   Ahh...this new glass reminds me of bountiful spring gardens and crystal blue summer lakes on a grayish winter day!

December is here- wasn’t it just June?

Where on earth does the time go?

Over the last 6 months I have been very busy designing new glass jewelry and creating decorative pottery. (Yes, this is living my dream- thanks to the support of my wonderful husband, family, and friends- I could not be more grateful for all these amazing people in my life!!)

I have been extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to share my work in a number of local art shows, festivals, fundraisers, and private parties–with each experience, I learn a little bit more…

This season is winding down with 3 more venues:

Friday, December 11: Private party

Saturday, December 12: Holiday Art and Craft Show Unitarian Universalist Church of Buffalo

Saturday, December 19: Holiday Open House at DeJa Vu Hair Cutting Room, Lockport
