THE MANY FACETS OF GLASS
Original Exhibit Dates: March 10, 2015 to April 7, 2015
Our 45th exhibit featured diverse work by six glass artists from near and far, and was specially created by gallery owner Maureen Watson to help advance the appreciation of glass as a creative medium by presenting different processes and methods.
Elodie Holmes (Santa Fe, NM) blows glass into beautiful shapes with swirling colors, produced through a secret formula passed down through her family.
John Geci (Penland, NC) combines Caning, an old Venetian technique, with beautifully clear vibrant colors to create his contemporary pieces.
Marlene Rose (Clearwater, FL) creates cast glass sculptures inspired by ancient cultures.
Carol Milne (Seattle, WA) 'knits' glass; her socks and bowls always amaze.
Ellen Abbot (Houston, TX) uses Pate de Verre, a method invented in France in the 19th Century, to create delicate sculptures with color graduations difficult to achieve in this medium.
Jacob Vincent (Brooklyn, NY) etches and cuts away layers of glass to unearth colors and create designs on his sophisticated blown glass bowls.
