35th Breckenridge July Art Festival Artists 2018
Using slab and pinch techniques. We do not use molds or forms. Subtle variations within the piece are generated by using different colored stoneware clays introducing different natural colors. Various textures are also added for accent and to give a sense of fun and elegance.
Handformed polychromatic functional and sculptural ceramic art created using a series of slumped and humped forms that are manipulated assembled and multifired for desired effect and glaze density
My work is hand-thrown and hand-built porcelain. Each piece is custom glazed and high-fired in a gas kiln.
Large Raku and stoneware vessels of my own making and glazing. I do Naked Raku, Horsehair Raku, & Stoneware firings at my studio in the Wet Mountains of Southern Colorado. Also medium and small pots.
Wheel thrown, hand-built, and sculpted clay, glazed in a variety of finishes and fired. Functional work as well as decorative and outdoor art.
In creating my work I focus on usability and function. I create visual movement in the clay forms, making an aesthetic balance between functional design and creative art. My work is fired to cone 10
Posters are designed from my plein air (oil) and graphite/marker studies designed in the Federal Arts Project tradition, then redrawn as digital art. Output from computer are digital prints/giclees.

DRAWING AND PRINTMAKING
My work is result of 15 year of experience in the world of leather. My inspiration is based on the shape of nature doing a work that clean where the design and the unique piece is the most important.
Hand-dyed and hand-woven wraps and ponchos with a focus on natural colors.
I made leather bags and accessories using uniquely treated leather and cowhide. I love to feature brand marks and scars to create absolute OOAK pieces with a rustic/refined voice.
Intricately hand-cut and framed paper pieces made up of 100's to 1000's pieces some smaller than 1/64th". Very detailed images.
My pieces are made of 85% handcast abaca paper. The surface is then covered with joint compound or cement, then copper leafed. Some pieces are painted with bees wax and pigment, called encaustic.
Using handcut fusing glass, I create mosaic wall art, embellishing them with hand painting and metal accents/capturing images of the Rockies and the Southwest
Hand blown glass with multi-layers of colors, cane and murrini
Stained Glass windows ranging in size and shape from 14" circles to free standing pieces over six feet tall. I use organic shapes and materials (shells, fossils,agates etc..)to amplify the narrative.
Offering glass familiar to a wide audience, we present the purity of color with stained glass. In the copper foil technique, we create contemporary art in a timeless tradition that enhances any home.
Completely made from raw materials. I combine multi layer sandblasting-over 200 designs, hand worked metal-each bead and texture created individually, hand painting, hand cut bevels, glass & mirror.
I use traditional glassblowin, many cold working & carving techniques, hot glass casting and acid etching to make my glass work. I love finding a balance of distorted, clear and colorful glass.
Exquisite complex fused glass with frit, stringer, powdered glass and dichro. Artist uses advanced techniques including, vitrograph, poppies, tapestry, melts, crackle, mandala, & combing techniques.
