The bar wallI just finished a sculpture I have been working on since April. A big commission for Que Bueno, a restaurant at Denver International Airport, terminal B. Please check it out next time you are flying somewhere. This piece was 80 square feet of 1″thick glass supported in a stainless steel frame. Much fun but I am glad it is finished. Just saw it installed and got a few pictures with many patrons present. I guess the airport never closes as this was at 9 in the morning.

Winter Fused Glass Workshop February 2010

Gallery Window time again…

Here it is that time again.  Seems like I just did this yesterday.  Maybe if I posted more often I wouldn’t feel that way.  But, I really like the way the window looks this year, somewhat more tied together.  Lots of leaves.  After the opening I will add a pic of it.

This is a new large bowl, originally ment to be a sink, but the customer changed her mind.  It is 17″ across and about 6″ deep and very red…I loved taking this pic outdoors on a red sandstone slab that reflected the red in the piece well.  Red is not a color that I use very much and after this I may include it in my palette.  It is always interesting to go a new direction and see what happens.
