Elemental Life in Frame

So it’s true that I’m a little crazy, but in a perfectly friendly, safe and non threatening way. I wake up, drink caffeine, do a little of this self-promotion/self-expression, think about how crazy life, the world, the universe, the reality is etc etc. Then, instead of curling up and quivering in a fetal position from the overwhelming nature of it all, I get to work and I use that overwhelm and anxiety etc. to take control of the glass and prove to myself that it’s all real and that when I look and listen, I can make the connections between the seemingly disparate things in a way that feels like I’m doing my part to keep it all together, actually show the work, and ideally support my family all at once.

Elemental Life In Frame” now available in the shop!

“Logos” Vessel

Art is a tool that we use for a mashup of reasons. To play and learn, to watch a thing take shape, to tell stories and express ideas. There is a theme to much of my work that is seemingly ambiguous. These are attempts to express the “absolute”. They are generally unplanned works that are the result of true inspired and passionate flow. These pieces take shape almost on their own.

 I make a template (the vessel) and the rest presents itself as I go. The symmetry and patterns are self-guiding. In all my hopes and dreams the effect of viewing them should be a restorative one. Like remembering something very important, but impossible to put into words…

Now available in the shop.

New beads added to the shop!

Working on a full overhaul of operations and it is good. Starting with these new additions to our shop. There is a whole lot of awesome in the works but it’s going to take some real time and effort on this side of things. More than ever, but it’s always worth it.

I’m in the workshop right this moment typing this on my phone. I’m going to offer things on this blog. Written accoutrements that I’d like to share. Things that I don’t care to toss into the turbulent book of faces like so many lost messages in a bottle.

Here I can share and know where it is, how to find it and show you. I have much to learn about making this work but I have to start and make mistakes or it will never become.

I write a lot, I share a lot because it’s something I’m compelled to do. The thing is that I can’t afford to do it as much as I would like, it takes a lot of time away from doing the work that pays my bills. (I am a Lampworker).

The idea is to try and concentrate my efforts here (again). More room to write, and it’s linked to our shop so maybe you like it and want to grab a bead to carry it with you and invest in more.

Here’s a quick poem for you to be on your way.

The Times

Every house holds three clocks.

They keep each other set with the tick and the tock.

One runs forward, one turns back, and the other is stopped.

The man looks around to find it and feels queasy at the proposition, that a timely choice is important to this mission.

Then he reaches up and takes all three. He remembered what it means to be.

I’m gonna go make glass objects now. but if the words move you more, or just enough to throw money at, or you just have so much you don’t know what to do with it, that donate button will take it and I’ll invest it well.  Thank you. Bless our place and our journey.

Another new set just added to the shop!

Lots of light catching clear, with amber-purple and black. I really dig how this set came together.  The new disc spacers really made it I think.
