On October 2nd and 3rd, Tom Krueger and I will be hosting an Open Studio once again. This gives folks a chance to come see us in more of our element than at an art fair. Tom will once again have his work in the greenhouse, and also plans to throw pots in the kiln area of my work space. I will have much more than you see at any show, covering all aspects of my glass work. The photos above are of Tom’s booth at Artstreet this last weekend with mobiles made by his son (Casey Early Krueger) hanging from the tent rafters. Hopefully we will have some of Casey’s work as well. And, just maybe, another artist or two….
The hours planned are noon to 4pm on Friday Oct. 2 and 10 am to 4 (or 5) pm on Saturday, Oct. 3. That’s what we have planned right now, but we’ll keep you posted if things change. Address is Nsixsixoneeight Hillside Road, Casco WI and you can send a message here for more information.
The new throw pillows available through Fine Art America started me thinking about having some of my images printed on fabric once again. This is something I have had in the back of my mind for a long time, and I have played with designs on Spoonflower, but never followed through with an order. Well, time has come! I ordered a few designs in their 8″ swatch format and they arrived today. With arrival of an adapter to try my macro lens on my husband’s new Sony a6000 mirrorless camera I had the perfect photo shoot opportunity. Here are some of the designs (I created a total of 11). They are “mirror repeat” patterns, each made with one of my macro photos. The pictures could be better, but this gives you the general idea. New product concepts are forming…..2015 should be interesting!
Happy New Year! and a belated Merry Christmas!
