Hello Spring!April 20, 2012
SerendipityMarch 5, 2012
I do not recall how long I have been imagining this piece. Took me a long time to actually create it. There had to be a perfect scale between the implosion (white burst of energy) and the figure. And the arms had to be in the perfect place.. . as she releases a magical energy…for the sake of Art, and imagination…
To feel free, beautiful, and have powerful goodness….If you could create an image of the moment an epiphany takes place, this is one of them.
After several years of imagining this one, and a few prototypes here and there. Being the Creator, I have to say, the completion of this project was a magical moment. Like Serendipity to me.

I have been wrapping my beads with sterling silver wire. This is it! Neat wrap. Very little tool mark. Still polished! In no way do I claim the title as “jeweler”…. I definetly am getting these how I like. (A couple hundred beads later)
This is available at my Etsy shop for a holiday affordable price.
Holiday’s!! ONE WEEK AWAY is one of my yearly Holiday show. AT THE DEARBORN GLASS ACADEMY!!
December 6 (Santa from 2 to 4) Open 10 am to 4 pm.
December 7 Open 10 am to 4 pm
(My 2nd year, and I plan to be back next year!!) My work is going to be beside some of the most very talented in my town! I am proud to be there! AT THE DEARBORN GLASS ACADEMY!! (They just updated some pictures on the HOME page! You can see Chris and Michelle! Super hip people that make art as a product line, and an element inside numerous corporate head quarters! Um…hello! These two are a success. Come check it out!) Dearborn, Michigan is right outside Detroit. Saturday and Sunday! Art, glass melting, demonstrations, craft classes!
It is a big building with lots to see!
Another show going on the same weekend. (My work is not there…) Friday, December 5-and throughout the weekend Epiphany studio is open. April and Jay. April from up north (Interlochen, MI.) and Jay from Lahser high school (Bloomfield hills, MI) They met at the Center for Creative studies, graduating in/around 1997 with Fine art glass sculpting as the specialty.
They are very talented. April has a sculpture line that I admire Very much!! (I just know I would love to talk back to one of her sculptures with a sculpture. Yeah, really! I share the content desire she has. Except I am a little bit more illustrational, and she is a bit more “essential”…Or “the essence” of a form. I hope to be at that level some day.
I am really hoping to make it to Epiphany studio! I will be setting up for my show at Dearborn on Friday….not sure I will make it…; If not, I want to go there and see the work they have been making all year. I bet a bunch of new EXTREEMLY AWESOME pieces are for sale. They open by appointment.
I can tell already it is going to be a VERY busy week.
Happy holiday’s! hope you can find the perfect gifts!
Many New designs for Christmas…….
