Glass projects are like creating jewels

is it any wonder that I enjoy creating new works in glass? The possibilities are nearly endless.

Creating glass art is similar to painting... But instead of using brushes filled with paint, I'm organizing bits of colored glass to form layered compositions that will become crystalline dreams of Glass! 

 

The edge to the right sites that the glass is actually blue, until layered on top of yellow...blue+yellow=green.

I love creating new glass creations!,

Touchdown!

After numerous months of designing and redesigning Crossroads_Daydream in the studio of my mind and three solid weeks of hands on welding, grinding, more welding, spontaneous accidental burnings of myself, sleepless nights and long, long, way too long hours in the studio...the day of installation has finally come!

The official unveiling of Crossroads Daydream will be Saturday, June 2 at the Fairport Canal Days Festival!

I am very, very happy and relieved that the sculpture is installed, secured and ready to be seen by young and old alike.

Now it's time to get ready for the show itself!

Final preparation

The day of installing Crossroads Daydream is here! I am in final preparations for moving it to and installation in Kennelley Park, Fairport, NY.

The access panel is removed here, so I can work on the new improved solar lights on the inside. Oh yes! It lights from the inside at night!!!

Stay tuned. Transportation and installation to commence in 1 hour.
