For almost 10 years my muse has been the female form, with a special affinity for the movement of hair. Early on, I found that the flowing nature of glass mimicked the natural flowing nature of a woman's hair. I've been drawn to this idea with near obsession for years. To me the beauty of glass lies in the curves and the flow of its lines. No other medium on earth can accomplish these ideas so delicately and perfectly. Addicted to this idea, I repeated my self over and over again, unsure over the years of what I would discover... Until now. Years of trial and error have finally brought the epitome of form and function to my work. Previously I had gone about the same formula, and my work became stagnant for it. This year I threw out my old patterns and replaced them with fresh ideas. Finally the "princess series" with this "hair tech" idea has come to fruition. Finally, the princess has learned all the vocabulary necessary to speak your language. Now she's got all her tricks and tools, she's fearless, ready to scream at the top of her lungs....Are you ready to listen?
Meet "Princess Terpina" she is #4 in my new function focused Princess Series. Featuring color prep from @goldengateglassworks with lots @northstarglass yellow and @glassalchemy lemon drop and blue dream.
The Warrior Princess of Perseverance" is the 6th princess of the function focused head series. She was started in the middle of February, and after a long hiatus away from the torch she was finished on April 13th. I have learned that sometimes things don't go as planned. Martin Luther King once said "if you can't fly, then run, If you cant run than walk, if you can't walk than crawl... But whatever you do. You have to keep moving forward" Be a warrior.
Be aware of the mask you wear, for if you change the way you look at things... The things you look at change. This is the first collaboration between myself and @mattrobertson.glassartist
"triple threat rediscuscitator" If you put little value in yourself, rest assured that the world will not raise your price. We do no justice to ourselves or the world when we play small. I'm so thankful to have had the opportunity to work with @eusheen...
