I'm back!

It's been a whirlwind era as I taught 4 artist/teachers to work with stained glass. Although we had been working with students from Germantown High School, deemed one of the roughest of Philadelphia's inner city for 5 years, the past two years were devoted to the students designing and building 18 windows for a remote and impoverished new school being built in the tiny village of KwaNgcolosi, South Africa (20 minutes west of Durban). All of their intense work was presented in a beautiful setting this past summer at the Philadelphia Welcome Center.
There the students windows were filled with light and enhanced our downtown. For the next part of this adventure I was fortunate enough to travel to South Africa with Sharon Katz (of the Peace Train)

where we delivered the hand-carried windows into the hands of the children of the village.

Once this school is complete, these fabulous children will no longer have to walk for 2 hours through the unforgiving hills to get their education. What a feeling of accomplishment for all who have been involved!

Won't you consider making a donation to Friends of the Peace Train or The Stained Glass Project: Windows that Open Doors? This school year we make windows for a new school in New Orleans!

"Mom to the Rescue" has been deemed prizeworthy!

This past weekend I attended the International Flameworking Conference in Salem, New Jersey and entered MOM in an exhibition held at the conference. And...I won a prize! All very exciting since she is clearly made of media in addition to glass. The flameworking world community is pushing the limits and off we go...

All is Glass

So here is the latest baby.
In case you have NO idea what you are looking at, I'll explain:
Take an antique toaster and spread its wings,
attach it to a roller skate with glass wheels,
and add a glass bandaid for a propeller;
place the queen (with a glass eye on the back of her head) on top of a vintage hand drill
so she can rotate 360 degrees in space and see all,
and fill her wings with all kinds of tools fabricated from glass:
a needle and thread, drinking straw, pencil, thermometer, umbrella, toothbrush, an extra hand, paintbrush, fork, toothbrush and some extra eyes just in case.

In fact, add a fused glass eye on top and a beautiful necklace cause it's a girl...

Now she is prepared for anything...she is: Mom to The Rescue!

My creations are travelling...

I am very excited to announce that 3 of my glass/found object sculptures have been accepted into a highly acclaimed gallery in Pittsburgh, PA called the Morgan Contemporary Glass Gallery. I am privileged to be exhibiting with many of my favorite celebrated artists such as Mark Abildgaard, Tina Betz, Carmen Lozar, Beth Lipman, Christopher Reis and Kari Russell-Pool. What a kick! Why don't you go to the gallery website and discover a whole new world. If you have a chance to get to this outstanding gallery, please tell Amy Morgan that I sent you. You won't be disappointed with the quality and variety of work there. I was so captivated by work at the gallery that it was difficult to leave.

The 3 pieces she represents are in this photo, but if you want to see them in much more detail, go to my website and click on glass and mixed media. Of course I'd love for you to browse and take a peek at my work, but these three works are entitled from left to right in the photo:

Incubator (there is a secret world inside this house of protection which is without windows and doors), Day Churns Into Night (made from an antique butter churner which can be turned one way or the other), and Time For Change (inspired by our brand new President and his ideas about all of us participating in healing the world).
Can you tell I am pleased with this new development?
