New Work – Grape Stomp

You can’t live in the Lodi Appellation and avoid the build up of anticipation for the grape harvest. It starts at the beginning of summer, as the grapes begin to take shape on the vine. As harvest nears, passers by can see the fruit visible from the road as they drive past mile after mile of vineyards. In Fall, just as the summer heat is at its peak, wine making fever takes over. It’s harvest time. The annual festival is on and hundreds of wineries hold grape stomp events in which adventurous souls step into the vat and stomp the juice from grapes with bare feet. This bowl hails from the Lodi Appellation – an area that is world-renown for its wine. The reclaimed glass is steeped in deep grape purple pigments and finished in a variegated metal foil. 9″ Diameter  

New Work – Red Circular Wall Hanging

This reclaimed glass wall hanging is finished in red and black pigments and variegated metallic foil.  Each piece measures 6 – 7″.  When hung together as a triptych, the overall dimensions will vary depending upon the installation configuration chosen.  A keyhole-type hanger is permanently affixed to the back of each piece providing for secure hanging.  Although the triptych can be hung in any configuration, the permanent keyhole hangers affixed to the back of each piece require that each piece is hung with the black towards to the top and the red towards the bottom, as shown.
