Jerry and Raye have their glass studio set up to show the step by step process of how they execute their art glass. They will also have finished glass projects in their studio.
Three blocks past the four-way stop sign on Sheridan and 19th Street. We are on the corner of 22nd and Sheridan. Turn downhill and park on 22nd Street.
Glass is to many, and certainly to us, an exciting medium. Over 20 years ago it captured our attention as a mysterious material with endless possibilities. Our attraction is of the fascination of being able to cut deep relief carvings and to break free-form edges in a wonderful mix of textures, shapes, and forms. Our hope is to share our excitement of wanting to visually see the shapes and sculpting, and even to physically touch and sense the layers of carving, sandblasting and textures, and fluid, watery edges. We also incorporate brass, steel, screen and stone for a mixed media approach to our glass art. Our new pieces are more abstract this year.
