Commission for Arizona Residence

What a pleasure to complete this custom triptych dreamscape sculpture for a private residence in Arizona. The commission was coordinated by Cobalt Gallery, arguably the best contemporary art gallery in Arizona. Cobalt has two locations, both in Tubac. Over all the sculpture is made with three pieces in separate stands that measures 38″ wide. The clients also opted for a coordinating 16″ diameter vessel for their table top. Both pieces can be seen where they permanently reside in the next image. What a gorgeous space.

Smithsonian Craft-Optimism 2021

I’m soooo soooo (soooo) excited to be announcing that my work has been accepted into Smithsonian’s Craft-Optimism, a curated, climate-conscious makers’ market. It was no easy feat to be included, so I consider it a great honor. Each of the 100+ artists had to be nominated to enter, then pass through a rigorous jury prior to acceptance. The result? The best of the best in beautifully-made, handcrafted American goods that educate the public about climate change or inspire or model a sustainable response to climate change. It’s the FIRST show of its kind. The show is being produced by the Smithsonian Women’s Committee (the same committee that organizes the well-known Smithsonian Craft Shows.) Proceeds of the event support grants to the Smithsonian. Visit CraftOptimism.si.edu to view the craft categories and pre-register to see the show at Bidsquare.com. More details will follow, but until then, you can print off the flyer (below). Also, Please sign up for my newsletter if you’d like early access to viewing the entire show. I will be allowed to invite a …

New Gallery: Cobalt Fine Arts

I’m excited to announce a new gallery is representing my work: Cobalt Fine Arts Gallery in Tubac, Arizona. Cobalt Fine Arts Gallery is a celebration of southwest contemporary art and the visions and perspective of the artists that live here.  Founded in 2002 by a grandfather-mother-daughter trio, Cobalt Gallery has grown from a family passion project into one of the leading art galleries in Arizona.  A long-standing part of Tubac’s historic art community, Cobalt focuses on painting as well as art glass, ceramics, jewelry and high-quality craft. Each piece has a distinctive take on color and dimension, providing visitors with rich visual and emotional experiences. This rich curated mix of fine art, jewelry and gifts is a must-see for collectors and art enthusiasts alike. Much of Cobalt’s emergence can be credited to majority partner and director Mesia Hachadorian (pronounced Meesha). She is an art lover who comes from a family of artists and has studied with curators in Florence, Tuscany, Rome and Venice. Her keen eye for color and fine detail, as well as her love for art, …

Dreamscape 125 – “Vintner’s Toast”

Created in the Lodi Appellation, “Vintner’s Toast” is a celebration of my homeland. This art sculpture has all that I love about the wine from here: rich color, smooth blends, and a spicey note. Each sculpture includes a raw steel stand that is individually welded to artfully display the sculpture. The steel stand will develop surface rust over time creating an artful juxtaposition between the stand and the glossy surface of the glass. Vintner’s Toast measures 18″ wide by 8.5″ tall.
