I’ve spent the summer experimenting and putting the final touches on new designs. The glass trees were a huge hit last year and I had many people tell me that they wanted to create a “forest” so I will have a few new styles/sizes to add in the mix.

I have also created a ornament for this year using discarded retail glass shelving.

I wanted to get an outdoor photo, but the sun was not cooperating. It has 7 pieces of kiln fired recycled glass on copper/galvanized wire and  measures approximately 10″ tall (not including the hanging wire) and 9″ wide. More colors are in the works.

New Year, New Trees

I had such a wonderful reaction from my series of triangle shaped trees this past fall and winter that I spent  time playing with new shapes and creating test molds. The roundness and almost cartoon like shapes make me think of spring which is welcomed after the -20 degree weather last week. I added a mini triangle tree to the photographs for comparison. More shapes and colors to come.

Adding Some Dimension

I scored more out dated wallpaper samples a few weeks ago at Zerolandfill Akron and decided to play around with some new shapes and dimension. I was looking through some photos I took over the summer and was inspired by fungus on a tree. This was one of the days that I wish I had left one wall in my house white. Maybe that will be a spring project.
