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.)

This Dreamscape sculpture was commissioned by an interior designer for a built-in niche in a residence in St. Louis Park, Minnesota. When I first saw the photograph of the niches, I was dazzled by the rich red wood cabinets. They reminded me of a mid century yacht. The colors of this dreamscape were based upon one I had previously made, but the size and depth were customized to suit the new owner’s space. It was a perfect match. In the end, the designer paired my custom glass sculpture with a few blown glass pieces by other artists creating a visual presentation of texture, light, and metallic shimmer. Overall, this custom piece measures 24″ wide by 10″ tall.
