I made this in February after a much needed winter break.
I really liked the layered glass pieces I began last summer and they are really all I am interested in making now. This continues with that process. The down side of creating them this way is that it takes two to three times as long to make one, but I feel the resulting depth they have when seen in person is worth the extra time and expense it requires. Basically there is one papercut between each layer of glass. In this one, for instance, there are three panes of glass for the three individual cut pieces. When placed together, it creates a false 3-D effect.
They are also quite heavy.
Here are a few new things that I will be showing at Eight Art & Design in Sheboygan next month.
More details to follow…
Thank you to everyone who came out to say hello to Todd Mrozinski and I at the Orange Gallery BVGN event this weekend.
It was nice to meet some many new, like minded people.
Also a big thank you to Ngoc for asking us to participate.
If you missed the night, the remaining work should be up and for sale for the next month.
Last summer Amity Skateboards approached me to design a skateboard for them.
Having wanted to design my own skateboard since I was a teenager, I obviously jumped on the opportunity.
The first version of the design I made is now available. I can’t wait to get my hands (and feet) on one of these.
I’m looking forward to teaching some little people how to pass their time the same way I did.
Buy it here.
I know I’ve been neglecting this webpage and my Facebook page in favor of Instagram lately.
Sorry about that, but it’s easier and more interactive.
That said, here are a few of the pieces I’ve finished this month that I haven’t posted yet. You can find larger images of each here.
Bunnies, bunnies, bunnies…I know, but I see them in my yard every day and they in the mythology of just about everything I care about.
I still haven’t had the time to finish the very large and elaborate pieces I posted studies of in December.
Some day, soon I hope.
As of now, most of the things I’ve posted this year and most of things coming up will be in a Milwaukee show in June.
More details on that when they are settled.
If you like my postcard boxes, Volume 1 is officially out of print.
Sparrow Collective and the Waxwing got the last copies a few weeks ago.
I have no plans to reprint them as they are nothing like what I started doing shortly after I made them.
I will hopefully have news about a collaboration with Orange Pops this spring.
Time will tell.
The solstice is at 10:48 (Central time) tonight.
Enjoy the darkness.
