OUT OF THE BOX EXHIBIT 2008
The Out of the Box Exhibit is a 6x6x6 inch wooden platform with a plexiglass top.
I created the cherry blossoms, leaves and bumble bees from glass. The wooden base is painted as an antique open book the top is painted in deep rich color with cherry blossoms then overlaid with velume paper that has the first page of my book "The Visitor" printed on it and dedicated to my favorite artist and musician. It's busy, it's whimsical and it's as romantic as a quiet little tear that runs down your cheek begging to be touched.
My inspiration always comes out of the music I love and paintings that I collect. I believe the soul of an artist is always seeking to hear the passion of like souls and to them I thank because I love each of them for sharing so much.
This sculpture is used in the Bead & Button Show Newsletter about the exhibit and the GAS Resource Guide 2008. It is my first attempt at creating a multimedia sculpture that incorporated my glass flowers but it is still the one piece that holds my passion and heart.
This is the first set of flowers that were juried into a book, the Bead Review II in 2006. I save all the work that is juried even those pieces that didn't make it. This is a combination of the different shades of Bullseye Purples and powdered glass. It has been begging me to create a necklace so I think I should at least consider it.
What Time Is It
This is a whimsical piece with Mexican Paper flowers and a pocket watch from my Heermance family which ties the flowers in with my love for genealogy. I have been a genealogist for almost twenty years and belong to an extremely large group of cousins who are just cool!
