Dale Chihuly is an American sculptor who does amazing and beautiful works in colored glass.

Dale Chihuly

His works range from small pieces to large scale installations, both outdoor and indoor, often accompanied by the striking effects of dramatic lighting. A large part of the appeal of his work, aside from the beautiful character of the material and the colors and patterns within it, is the inspiration he takes from natural forms. His graceful, fluid objects echo forms from plants, birds and even undersea life. The natural origins of his shapes are frequently emphasized by installations in which his sculptures are placed in natural settings, notably in botanical gardens.

Chihuly studied glass at the first program of its kind at the University of Wisconsin in the 1960′s. The museum has several videos and a slideshow feature on their website. Marbles 1. Playing with Rocks – Marla's Art Page Blog. 14 Sep Rocks are pretty easy to find around here.

Electrolytic Copper Etching. As part one of my mission to make my studio practice healthier for me and any future babies, I decided to give electrolytic copper etching a try.

Electrolytic Copper Etching

It turns out it's so easy to do I am surprised more people haven't tried it. I downloaded an article from Art Jewelry about how to do it, but you can also find lots of good information floating around the internet.Basically, all you need to do is hook up a D battery to two pieces of copper suspended in a saltwater bath. One is the piece you are etching, the other can be any piece of scrap copper. The current draws copper from the etching piece to the scrap copper.

Wire Wrapped Agate Cuff Bracelet

Seriously love them. Especially bracelets (gee, have you noticed?? LOL). So I tried my hand at a wire wrapped cuff, and for a first try, I’m pretty happy with it! The things is, I can’t help looking at it and seeing all the room I have for improvement.
