Prepping for Haystack Cast Glass Workshop

July 19, 2015

I’ve been wanting to explore kiln-cast glass for a while, so I’m excited to attend Daniel Clayman’s Haystack workshop at the end of August. I’ve been teaching myself to create objects in wax in preparation. Here are a few:

It will be interesting to see how they translate into glass.

Beyond the Brickyard exhibition.

February 5, 2012

I just returned from a whirlwind weekend in Montana, celebrating the opening of the 4th annual Beyond the Brickyard exhibition at the Archie Bray Foundation. The exhibition was juried by Richard Shaw this year. The show is situated in the North Gallery and runs through April 7th.

The artists and staff at the Bray were very welcoming, especially Emily Free Wilson. I spent a few hours during the day walking the grounds and taking in the sights. Ceramic art is nestled into nearly every nook and cranny, transforming a simple walk into a fun adventure. Below is a small taste of the hundreds of photos I took while exploring the grounds:

This was a very fun experiment, but I spent a sleepless night hoping that I wasn’t going to have to buy a new kiln for Mudflat because my glass melted all over the place. Some did escape, but I fired on trays with sand in them. Whew!
