A cast dream

I completed a project by casting my idea researched in the last posting. The subconscious of a little mouse has been cast in clear, pale gray and blue Gaffer glass, representing a watery dream. Here are a few pictures of the casting process and it's result.

Drawing research process...

For this post I thought it might be interesting to share with you an example of my drawing development, which eventually leads to an actual work of cast glass. I had this idea of representing the dream of a little mouse, and this is what started my working process. As you will see I continue to draw until I find the right way to represent my idea in glass.

Wintry inspirational beauty

Finally a long awaited update.. . I have been working away in my studio which is slowly but surely becoming a wonderful place for creation. I was in Vancouver in mid-November for a few days, were I rented some time at New-Small & Sterling Studio. I had the chance to access some equipement needed to speed up my grinding and polishing process. I have been working on a few particular pieces that require alot of cold working, so my patience is put to the test everyday. Here are some recent pictures of the stimulating surroundings that constantly inspire me.

Can you feel the heat...

It's been a while since my last post, i've been traveling the past month visiting family and friends in beautiful Quebec. I am finally posting photos from my first glass exhibit in Vancouver, Heat: Expressions in Glass at the CityScape Community Art Space.  It was so nice to see my work showcased along side other Canadian glass artists.

My current project

Recently, I have been working on a water glass piece to complete my two legged head piece. It was really a fun week of creation and I am pleased with the outcome of this long firing (70 hours). I chose a mixture of pale jade green and clear glass to emulate water in movement. Now let the coldworking begin...

Plaster and Silica mold

Ready for firing

Preparation for Upcoming Show

Here I am preparing and packing my piece for the Vancouver exhibition... I had the confirmation from Molly, my private delivery service, that it arrived safely to its destination! Thanks, Molly!

Upcoming Show in Vancouver

I am pleased to announce that I will be participating in this group show in Vancouver. I will be travelling to the coast for the opening night with a good friend of mine on the 7th of July. I will do my best to document the event for a future post!

New Work

Here are three new pieces that I have had photographed recently. I am planning to make more of these surreal little creatures this summer. They are all made from cast Gaffer Glass, except the blue legs of the five legged creature--that is Bullseye Glass. I am proud to start showing pieces made in my new kiln.
