Here they are, fresh out of the oven. A new line of drinking glasses made with ‘Ocean’ colors. Ocean blue, Ocean green, Ocean celadon. The tall glasses are 5 and a half inches tall. The “Rock’ glasses are 3 and a half inches tall. Both are 3 and a half inches wide. Each glass has the distinctive one dot of contrasting color. I really like these. They’ll be available at the Mayo St. Arts Center Craft Fair, this Sunday. The Fair is from 10 – 4 p.m. Hope to see you there.

This piece is small, 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″, but it makes a big impression. I just posted it onto my Etsy page.
Inspired by Native American blankets, I made glass tiles and arranged them in this pattern, fused them all together, picked up the pattern on the blowpipe, and shaped it into this small pot. I then sandblasted the surface, to give it a matte finish. One of a kind, there are no more tiles to make another piece. Hope you like it.
Come on over to Rockport on Thursday, for the opening of what is always a great craft show, The Work of The Hand. It’s put on by The Center For Maine Contemporary Art. and is held in Pascal Hall, 86 Pascal Avenue, Rockport. I’ll have a bunch of new work, so I hope to see you there. The show runs through Monday, the 10th.
I really like the way this came out. The combination of opaque and transparent glass allows some light to come through and reflect on the table surface. Which, for me, becomes an important part of the bowl.
This bowl measures 16 1/2 inches in diameter. A large size for me. But it didn’t present any difficulties in the oven for fusing or slumping. The thickness is no different than usual.
Wow. What a great event. Rick Lowell pulled off another excellent festival. Very talented cartoonists out there. And a huge crowd to see it all. Many more than last year!
My thanks to all the people who bought the Conversation Pieces. I appreciate it, and enjoy.
