I participated to the most wonderful craft sale in Echo Park this past week. It had such great designers and such fantastic energy, I met lots of great people (new clients) and made some lovely trades!

Holiday Necklace - birds of a feather

Lately I have been thinking that it would be nice to do a different holiday necklace each year - something that would be easy to get for someone else (with out lots of worries of length or style). Here is my first go, also my first piece designed in the new studio space!
The necklace has a brass slide enclosure so the length can be changed and it comes in all the usual colors - check out the website for a look at colors.

New Studio

Well this all took a lot longer than I thought it would have - but the studio is finally set up in the new house! we took the garage doors off and put in some french doors and a window, and I now have a wonderful light filled work space. So I am putting away the hammers and saws and pulling out the wax pots and plaster!
New pieces will be coming soon!

Glass Quarterly write up of the group show in Santa Ana

Exhibition Opening: Katherine Gray curates Southern California glass mini-showcase

When you think West Coast glass, Seattle is the obvious first place to come to mind, with Portland, Eugene, and the Bay Area not far behind. But few realize that a budding glass scene has been blossoming in Southern California over the past few years thanks to longtime residents such as Joe Cariati, as well as more recent transplants.

At an opening on Saturday, December 5th, there will be a chance to catch a glimpse of this movement at a noncommercial gallery exhibition called “Blown” that will continue through January 3, 2010. Because of a brutal round of budget cuts in the financially battered state of California, the event will be taking place at a satellite gallery of Santa Ana College because the glass program there has (hopefully only temporarily) been closed.

At an exhibition space inside the Santora Building in downtown Santa Ana, the work of Eoin Breadon, Katherine Gray, Eric Huebsch, Dylan Palmer, and Timothy Ringsmuth will be on display in an exhibit curated by Gray. Loosely organized around the theme of blown glass, this exhibition is more of a survey of the activity happening in area hot shops. When gallery space opened up after another exhibit was canceled, Gray took the opportunity to showcase glass as a way to “offer friends a chance to show work in the area, because as you know there’s not a lot of glass-y venues,” she told GLASS in an emailed response to questions. It’s also a rare chance to see what people are working on.

From Gray’s restrained but complex nest of bubbles to Ringsmuth’s neo-psychadelic wall work that echoes Milton Glaser’s iconic Bob Dylan poster via Chuck Close, the exhibition will be worth a visit to anyone in the area.
