I am excited to be building a larger glass art studio in my home. And as a lifelong environmentalist committed to clean energy, making art that requires electric kilns, it's been a little embarrassing to use so much electricity.
So I'm especially pleased to have the chance to insulate the heck out of the walls and roof of my studio, and have a brand new 5KW solar system on the roof. I will be offsetting the electricity use of my kilns and a good deal of my household energy use as well. (Note the foam insulation under the window.)
I have finally selected a logo for Joy of Glass, using a crowd-sourcing process in which I reviewed over 100 designs, had a focus group help me judge the designs, and eventually found one I liked. I think it captures the color, spirit , and creative process in my glass art. Here it is, hope you like it!
Come to Glen Echo this weekend -- they're opening the carousel! And also, a show at the Art Glass Center
This is the last weekend of the "Fired Up" show at the Art Glass Center at Glen Echo. These are two of my pieces -- along with about 65 other great pieces from studio artists.
Tomorrow (May 2nd) is Family Day at Glen Echo -- come on out!
