Portland Oregon Feb 8, 9, 10 – Yard Garden and Patio Show

Steider Studios:  Monarch Butterfly

This Friday the Yard, Garden & Patio Show opens!  I’ll be in booth 659 near the display gardens.  Stop by, say hello and tell me you follow my blog.  I just finished a ton of new glass garden ornaments including glass butterflies, buggettes and ladybugs for your garden decor.  PLUS….  I’ll have new note cards made from my photographs AND some canvas wraps and metal prints that are absolutely stunning!  I am loving my new photographic efforts and results.

Imagine this Empty Space Filled with Light and Glass

This empty space at the Oregon Convention Center will be filled with light, artists and their creations in glass during the 12th Annual Glass Gallery at Gathering of the Guilds in Portland Oregon. I’ll be in booth 129 near the Demo area – stop by & tell me that you follow my blog!

My display is up & ready!

156 ~ 365: Bridge of Glass

At long last, my first visit to the Museum of Glass in Tacoma!  My favorite part was the Kids-Design-Glass exhibit.  Kids submit drawings and stories, the hot shop team selects one per month to replicate and invites the lucky kid to come watch a front row viewing of their design being executed.  Twice.  The museum keeps one and gives the other to the kid who designed it!

Everyone raves about the Bridge-of-Glass, and I was indeed impressed.  From the skylight photo at the top of this post, to the collection from the ‘wall’ below.  Looking forward to going back when I have a bit more time to spend.

154 ~ 365: Robin’s Egg Blue

135 ~ 365: Columbia Gorge Art Festival

105 ~ 365: Waiting for the Wind to Stop…

Photographing objects around my house while waiting for the wind to stop so I can play in the garden.  This is a box-cast tree I did a few years ago when Bullseye Glass introduced the technique.  It’s 9.5″ x 14″ & weighs about 30 pounds.
