Here are some of the beads I’ll have at the show this weekend as well as some of my bigger sculptures. I’ll only have a small table out front this year (Booth #32 near entrance and demo area) as i’ve not had much studio time… as you can see, i still have a pile of beads to clean.
Hope to see you at this year’s show!
Sat Oct 18th, 10am – 6pm
Sun Oct 19th, 10am – 5pm
Location: Hellenic Centre, 1315 Prince of Wales Drive, Ottawa, Ontario

Come see me at Booth #28… I’ve been hard at work making lots of new beads!
I’ve been saying i’m going to get a proper video of myself torching for years and finally decided to try a quickie one. Forgive the shakiness, i had that heavy chunk of glass in my left, phone in my right and was trying to watch the video and rotate the glass in/out of the flame at the same time without frying myself.
This 3″ long chunk of solid glass eventually (over the next several hours later) was hot sculpted into a large goddess. I’ll post pics once it’s complete.
Note: You may want to turn yr volume down as the tv is kinda loud…
A quick video (thanks again to Liana!) of the sculpture in my latest exhibition (Best of the National Capital Network of Sculptors, closed 2/23/13) at the City of Ottawa Central Archives: “Stone Goddess Under Moonlight”.
She’s the second sculpture in the Elemental Goddess series and represents earth (as well as being my favourite of the three sculptures I’ve made so far)…
This past weekend i was interviewed by Liana Voia, the host of Contemplative, Expressive and Imaginative Arts for her live radio art therapy show.
I was a nervous wreck in the beginning but once i calmed down i think it went well. Liana asked some great questions and it was wonderful opportunity to explain my passion for glass to someone who appreciates art and supports local artists. For those with a slow connection there’s an audio-only version as well.
There’s also a second video with my son participating which i’ll post tomorrow. Anyhoo, enjoy and leave a comment! I’d love to hear what you all think…
