THE MANY FACETS OF GLASS
Original Exhibit Dates: March 10, 2015 to April 7, 2015
The Many Facets of Glass featured diverse work by six glass artists from near and far. Gallery Owner Maureen Watson designed this exhibit to help advance the appreciation of glass as a creative medium by presenting different processes and methods. Elodie Holmes, of Santa Fe, and John Geci, of Penland, N.C., blow glass into beautiful shapes. Holmes' pieces are a fusion of swirling colors produced through a secret formula passed down her lineage. Geci combines Caning, an old Venetian technique, with beautifully clear vibrant colors to create his contemporary pieces. Marlene Rose, of Clearwater, Fla., creates cast glass sculptures inspired by ancient cultures. Carol Milne, of Seattle, 'knits' glass - her socks and bowls will amaze. Ellen Abbot, of Houston, uses the method Pate de Verre invented in France in the 19th Century to create delicate sculptures with graduations in color difficult to achieve in this medium. Jacob Vincent, of Brooklyn, etches and cuts away layers of glass to unearth colors and create designs on his sophisticated blown glass bowls.
