I hope you are all happy and healthy and had nice Thanksgiving. Two more festive activities coming up this month. Of course Christmas and holidays but also our annual Holiday Sale featuring beautiful blown glass objects. And of course fun demos of glass blowing and our Friday night fundraiser helps out The Society of Arts and Crafts. I hope to see lots of you there.
We had a great year finishing several significant commissions. Our largest residential commission was completed for a repeat client who built a spectacular home in the Boston areas North Shore. We contributed 13 new windows including traditional ornamental windows, roundel windows and two fun cabinet doors for the wine room including found glass objects. Most challenging were two new windows for the Harvard Lampoon Castle in Harvard Square. This was another project as part of a series we are collaborating with Michael Frith as the designer. Great fun!!
This Fall we had an incredibly successful set of classes. Students created some fantastic pieces of glass art and I'm excited to start the next set of classes. The upcoming set of classes will begin the second week of January and finish in the second week of February.
I am again offering the Beginner I class on Monday nights, and because the response to my last set of classes was so enthusiastic, I will continue to offer an additional Beginner I class on Thursday nights, limited to six students so I am able to offer lots of much-needed attention. It's the best class to reinforce your skills if you have only taken one or two classes. The number of pieces in your project will be limited to 18 pieces so you will be able to finish.
Wednesday night’s Makers Mayhem class will require a bit of experience so it will only be open to students who have taken several classes from me. I will have lots of nontraditional materials available for students to use; chandelier prisms and found-glass objects; plus students will also be able to incorporate photo imaging or fused glass or combinations of techniques and materials. It’s mayhem!! I’m also open to students who want to do larger and/or more complex projects that might span several class sessions.
Find more information about these class offerings on my Classes page.
Best wishes friends and I look forward to seeing new and veteran students at the holiday sale and when classes start in January.
