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.
Making the fabric with Spoonflower’s program made me think about creating mirror images that could be printed on other materials, i.e. standard photos, metal prints. There is a great tutorial on making them in Photoshop, so I got to work. Finally got to bed about 1:30 am….. (which was a bit of an issue because our Great Dane/White Shepherd mix had decided he was sleeping in my spot). My husband questioned whether or not these new images were true to my claim that all of the designs I show are “in the glass”. Well, the only manipulation I do is to multiply the photographic image, so I’m thinking it’s not much of a stretch. And what I am seeing seems worth the work! Enjoy!
