I am excited to announce that I will be involved in the Wesleyan Artist Market this year! I will be sharing a booth with one of my coworkers, and hopefully selling some artwork. If you live in the area (Norcross, GA) please stop by and support local artists! The market will have over 80 artists selling work, in a range of materials from jewelry to oil paintings. The market will be open to the public Thursday May 2nd (7-9pm), Friday May 3rd (9am-7pm), and Saturday May 4th (10am-4pm).

This is my very first craft fair, if all goes well I may look into joining the Atlanta craft circuit in hopes of selling more of my artwork. At my booth I will have my fused glass pieces and mixed media artwork for sale. I will have a range of sizes, subject matter and prices. My mixed media pieces range from $15-$550.  I hope to see you there!

Artwork: Fused Glass Plates and Bowls

Fused-Glass--Square-Bowl

My most recent art venture has been more on the sculptural side, with fused glass, and I am in love!

A few years ago my mom began purchasing glass fusing supplies in order to teach a glass lesson at her elementary school. As she developed her projects she began bringing home her examples, pieces of jewelry, decorative tiles, and ornaments. I loved her creations and I was dying to try it out for myself.

My opportunity came when I switched jobs from a public school to a private school. This switch brought me smaller class sizes, a larger art room, more support for my program, and a large budget. As I stared at my budget spreadsheet all I could see was glass. I immediately submitted a request for supplies, and my glass making began.

Fused Glass-Small Square Geometric Bowl

I experimented until I found a style I liked, a contrast between organic and geometric lines. This piece is a smaller bowl and was created using flat glass pieces and frit.

Fused Glass- Geometric Pattern Round PlateI love the scalloped design against the straight edges of my cut rectangles an squares. I decided to create a five piece plate set using this design concept, here are two of the five.

Fused Glass-Geometric Blue and Green PlateSince receiving my shipment of glass supplies, and creating my own examples, I have taught a glass fusing lesson to my high school 3D II class, and they loved it! Throughout the project I heard them talk about how much fun they were having and the majority of them have marked the project as their favorite for the year. I plan on posting my lesson on glass making soon!

If you love these bowls and plates take a look at my other creations on my Etsy shop here! Thanks for stopping by and supporting my blog, I hope to see you back soon!
