I sent $500 to the capital Area Food Bank (rounding up from $471) -- a couple of you even matched or added to the donation. Thank you for supporting my glass art, and for helping our community!
The Offer Still Stands -- Buy Local Art, Help Those in Need
The Capital Area Food Bank is an especially important resource at this time. I will donate 25% of the purchase price of anything you buy from Joy of Glass, through at least May, maybe longer. If you are not local, I can send the donation to your local food bank. And for my neighborhood fans of the Circle Yoga Cooperative, you can choose that to receive the donation; just send me a note.
Everyone has their own ways of dealing with anxiety -- mine is making art. Regardless of the state of the world, I can lose myself in the creative process. I also find that riding my bike (an excuse to be outside!) and cooking (ditch the scale!) keep worries at bay. What is your way of dealing with the this time of stress? I hope everyone is coping and adapting well to our new normal.
While most of what I sell in shows is jewelry, I also make glass art for the wall and the table. For most shows, I have to choose between showing my jewelry or my glass art -- and I generally choose to show jewelry. But I have missed showing glass art, and I was actually scheduled to open a show of wall art, along with two other glass artists, for late March. So instead of gracing the walls of the River Road Unitarian Universalist Congregation, I'm showing a few of them here.
I'm using this page to talk about the art and joy of working with glass and silver.
