And now to resume my account of my activities this past summer! I worked on the idea of integrating my glass "In Situ". Placing my work in a specific outdoor setting enhances it's connection with the natural surroundings from which it is often inspired, but it also creates a contrast with the surreal quality of the work. With the help of my lovely assistant, I brought my piece, "Apparition" into the woods where I walk every morning. There, we had a photo session. I am quite pleased with the result, and I plan to explore pushing my glass practice further by experimenting with ways to display and express my artistic vision more fully. I will be participating in an exhibition called "The Last Glass Show", to which I have submitted one of these experimental photos. The exhibition will run from November 15 to December 28 at the OCC Gallery in Toronto. I will post more information on the exhibition closer to the opening.
