I am looking forward to being part of the first ever Open Studios Evanston event next Saturday, June 7th at 3-8p. Photographs simply can't capture the experience of seeing glass in person. Glass shifts and shimmers with light and motion, catching our attention and bringing us back to a moment. And this shifting and shimmering is exactly why I work with this powerful medium. In the studio, you'll get an overview of the techniques I use to create the effects I love with glass and be able to see how it works in all kinds of color studios and studio experiments and prototypes.
On the main floor, I'll be showing the first 7 pieces from the Proust series I have been working on with Dr. Virginia Barry. Bringing together many of my favorite topics, this project explores the neuroscience behind Marcel Proust's In Search of Lost Time. More on this project can be found here.
Come on the early side with the kids to give them a peek of a glass studio. Or stop by later for a visit and a glass of wine. Looking forward to an Evanston afternoon and evening of art and friends.
