joe peters: underwater life as seen through the torch

A post on Paul Stankard’s Facebook page led me to the luscious lobster below.  Flameworker Joe Peters created the sculpture during the Corning Flame-Off competition earlier this summer.

A scuba diving hobby helped Peters develop an appreciation for underwater life – an appreciation he translates well through his torch. This young glass artist is one to watch.

dc internship – an invitation to extend my time here

It’s hard to believe that tomorrow will mark one month since I arrived in DC to begin my 6-week internship here, working with artists to develop a deeper understanding of the day-to-day life of a professional artist. Only two weeks left and then I will leave this unique artist’s haven. But wait! I have been invited to extend my stay until the end of March to continue my work with this truly special group of artists.

You can help me extend my stay. Tim Tate has very generously donated four of his cast glass hearts to give as donor perks to the first four people who make a $200 donation. As I mentioned in a previous post, the 4″ x 2″ hearts are elements that Tim makes for his larger glass sculptures. He does not sell these elements. Mr. Tate is well on his way to being a part of glass art history – if you are a fan, this is the only way you can own a Tim Tate that doesn’t cost many thousands of dollars – Don’t. Miss. This. Chance. A HUGE thank you to Tim for his donation to the apprenticeship project.

To make a $200 donation and receive one of Tim Tate’s luscious cast glass hearts (4 available):

{UPDATE 2/27/11: Only 2 hearts left!}

Another way to help?  Hire me to assist you with your web presence. (Just one example of what I can help you with – I taught this artist how to use an amazing template which led her to design and complete two websites in just a few weeks – no need for html or css coding knowledge – really! Check out her other site here). Click here for your options.

Later this weekend I will post a summary of what I have done/experienced/witnessed so far on this journey. Want to see all of the project posts? Right here. Stay tuned – next week I will be adding audio to several slide shows. Very cool.

federico uribe finds art in the everyday

Federico Uribe began his career as a painter, evolving into a sculptor who uses everyday objects to give color, shape and texture to his work.

Uribe transforms coins, pencils, shoelaces, shoe soles, wire hangers, gardening tools and screws into luscious female figures, animals, plants and abstract sculptures – some will make you think, some will make you laugh, others offer a private meditative zone.

Abstract #4, pennies, 48″ x 48″ x 10″

Chrysanthemum, yellow colored pencils, 48″ diameter

Abstract #10, safety pins, 48″ x 48″ x 10″

Free World, plastic soldiers, 24″ diameter x 12″ deep

Hooker, safety pins, 34″ x 15″ x 14″

The process includes hours of labor intensive repetitive work that borders on compulsive. I could get lost in the Abstract-O series (the first four images in this post are from that series). His portfolio is extensive so be prepared to spend some time there and don’t miss the Installations.[/private_archives]
