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.

Busy making Conversation PIeces. Thought you’d like to see what part of the process looks like. That’s me making the pointer at the end.
I’m assisted by the excellent Ben Coombs.
These are glass cartoon word balloons handblown by me in the Portland glass studio. You can write whatever you want on the word balloons, with a dry erase marker, which comes off easily with any clean cloth.
The Conversation Pieces™have been available since June in the Museum Shop, to coincide with the Roy Lichtenstein exhibit that is going on there. I’m now glad that they are available to anyone, even if you can’t make it to Chicago to see the exhibit.
This is great. To coincide with their Roy Lichtenstein exhibit in May, the Museum Shop of the Art Institute of Chicago will begin selling my glass word balloons, the Conversation Pieces™. They’ll be the blank word balloons pictured here that you can write, draw, and doodle whatever you like.
So, tomorrow I go into the studio and start making 50 of these. Yeah, That’s a lot. It’ll take a couple of days, for sure. But I’m psyched.
Here are my latest Conversation Pieces for Valentine’s Day. You need to get these for the Love of Your Life. These are much better than chocolates or even a diamond ring. Really! Unique, fun, sincere, and they hang on the wall, for all to see.
