swirly fun love for your valentine

Calligraphy on glass. This is how I first started etching glass and I still love it. I do not use acid, I use a drill and it is very similar to drawing with a pencil...but it is permanent.

These little vases are about 3 or so inches tall and make a perfect gift for your valentine. Just $30, they will be beautiful with an elegant flower perched on top. (I made some paper flowers) The etching is swirly and fun, which makes it prefect for anytime of year, really.

Another plus is that these can be personalized. Add a name, a phrase, a line from a poem (there is not a ton of room, so don't get too crazy...) You can make these your own and have some fun. Just think about conversation hearts or whatever message you'd like to send. Personalized vases are $38.

Currently you can find these at the Decatur Market & Gallery.
Go by and see the "i love you" vases in person. Other locations will be announced soon and you can always contact me here to order one.

Happy New Year!

I've had a nice long holiday break and was surprisingly ready to get back to work this week! I have a long list of things I'd like to do, finish and start. As always there are too many things on my list and I never seem to have time for it all. I am resolved to be better organized this year so I can prioritize my time and continue to explore and experiment as an artist.

December was busy. Mostly with glass commissions. Here are a few of the over 3 dozen mini glass vases I monogrammed. Plus I now have my glass work in the Decatur Gallery in downtown Decatur (behind Cakes and Ale). All you locals should go check out the work-it is a wonderful group of artist that show there!

happy 2011!
