i'm jealous of the jealous curator!

I loooove this!
I am jealous of this blog!! Seriously, I often find myself discovering an artist's work or an innovative business idea and kick myself a little bit.....wow, i wish i had thought of that or done that or whatever... there really are so many dynamic and diverse points of view and that makes our world wonderful, exciting and most of all, inspiring. I just love that this blogger comes right out and says, "jealous". it is perfect, because let's be honest, where there is admiration, there is often a little bit of jealousy sprinkled on top, no?


and in reading this blog, I have discovered this innovative idea...cool art for a great price. plus a good blog name.

and because i have been living under a rock lately, here is this discovery.... how awesome would it be to goto this, um next week? oh well...one day!

Marlis Cornett catalog cover

The holiday season was great! This was my first year to participate in holiday markets and it was exciting and productive. I met so many new and interesting people which lead to some exciting custom design work that I hope to display on this blog soon.
In the meantime I am updating my catalog and busy photographing some new items.
Here is the current catalog cover and please check back to see some updates over the next couple of weeks.
Happy 2012!
Marlis

Peachtree Road Holiday Artist Market


Yesterday morning was the first of two holiday artist markets at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market (St Philips).
It was a lot of fun and great to meet so many people. Hoping to see everyone at the Dec 17th market!
Thanks to all who came out - here is a photo of my table. The personalized ornaments were a hit. There is still time to order yours...turn around is about a week and half currently.
send me a note if you would like to order one.

This weekend is the Clairmont elementary school market place and I'll be there friday night and saturday. I will have the engraved glass and also some new jewelry pieces-come check it out!

Fallen: Pendant light made from recycled glass


The Decatur Gallery recently had a show in October called Fallen and here is my entry which hangs in the gallery window. Pendants have been on my radar for awhile and this was the perfect time to experiment. I used recycled glass from various projects and sanded, painted and carved various pieces to hang from metal rings. I love how this turned out (and sadly it is not easy to photograph...but this image gives a pretty good depiction).
I'm looking forward to experimenting more with this concept.
