New Line of Drinking Glasses

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.

More Conversation Pieces. “Time To make The Donuts.”

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.

My Glass in the Art Institute of Chicago Fall Catalog

The new fall catalog of the Art Institute of Chicago Museum Shop is now out, and you can see my Conversation Pieces™ for sale there. Page 33. I’m very excited about that.

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.

Art Institute of Chicago to Sell My Conversation Pieces™

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.

If you’re in Chicago in May, stop in for the exhibit, of course, but also make sure you see the Museum Shop.

My Dog Knows How To Have A Good Time

My dog, Willie, took advantage of some new snow to show me around the yard.  He took me on a very interesting tour.
