Sunset Bowl

Creating this 12″ bowl was a fun and interesting challenge. My client wanted a specific shade of yellow to be incorporated with mottled sunset colors. Yellow is a color I have avoided in the past, but I’m a convert. After several tests and experiments, I was able to create a marigold shade of yellow. I love it so much, I’m already using it in other new works. This is the Sunset Bowl. It is 12″ diameter and now lives in a beautiful home in Texas.

Marigold Bowl

Just like the well-loved Marigold flower bloom, this bowl symbolizes beauty, warmth, creativity, a drive to succeed. Perfect as a gift, or to set out and be reminded of your own values. The vessel is created from reclaimed glass and is finished in orange and yellow pigments and variegated metal foil. It measures 10″ diameter.

Swirls of Cobalt Transport to Another World

When I was a kid, I loved The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. The drama was pretty good, but my favorite thing was the Wardrobe. The whole idea of stepping through a secret door to another world was intriguing and delightful. And I’ll admit, the idea intrigues me to this day. I still check closets for secret doors. (Sorry to report, none yet.) That’s why I’m so interested in creating portals to the beyond, like this one: Swirls of cobalt and teal promise the adventure of another place. Another time. The metallic silver throws reflections of yourself, just on the other side, looking back. It’s like you can see the shape of yourself in another dimension waiving, “C’mon over, it’s fantastic here.” This piece is 22″ in diameter. It’s permanently framed in a coordinating silver-toned frame. Available via ArtfulHome.

Oblong Vessel in Sky Blue

This piece was created in the heat of the summer, as represented in the firey pink and copper variegated metallic below. Viewed from above, this elevated oblong vessel is a cool pool, ready for a deep dive. Measuring 16 x 6 x 7, this textural piece invites to you immerse. Finished with a reclaimed red cedar stand.

Oblong Vessel in Berries and Gold

Representing abundance, this textural piece is finished in colors of berries and gold. This oblong vessel sits upon a reclaimed wood stand that elevates it literally and figuratively. Measuring 16″ wide, by 6″ deep by 7″ tall, this vessel makes an impact where ever it is displayed.

Dreamscape 136, Calming Blue

This captivating Dreamscape sculpture is reminiscent of a tropical ocean dive. Bits of calypso blue give way to vibrant purple, all finished off with silver metallic foil. Created with reclaimed glass, pigments and metallic foil. The glass is presented in a raw steel stand.

Coral Reef Bowl

The gently swept edges of this vessel are reminiscent of ocean waves over a pink coral reef. Deep colors of blue and green are deep like ocean waters. This vessel is created with reclaimed glass, pigments and metallic foils. It measures 12″ in diameter.
