A new fused glass relief print inspired by my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I’ve been thinking a lot about growing up there recently, since my wife and I are moving back in about a month. I can’t wait to be home developing an arts education organization and holding community workshops in both print and glass. I’ll keep everyone posted about our progress.

Have a great day.

Can You Hear Me

Fused Glass Relief Print

5″ x 5″ x 3/4″

I know it’s been awhile since my last post, but I’ve been working on a technique that combines relief printing and glass fusing.  This is the result.  It’s printed using glass powder on multiple pieces of clear sheet glass, which are then fused together to make an image /object the viewer can look into.  More to come, but I’m very excited.

Have a great day!

New Print Pics…. Finally

S0… A few months ago I came back from a winter residency at Penland School of Crafts and said I would post pictures of the finished piece soon.  Well… Life got pretty busy when I got home and I never got to it… Until now.

Since I got back from North Carolina I’ve also printed a number of newer pieces.  I’ve included a picture of one that was just featured at an exhibition here in Portland.

IMG_4257Just back from my winter residency at Penland School of Crafts.  I will make a full post soon, but wanted to share this exciting news.  Penland featured my work today on their blog.

I had a wonderful time pushing the limits of my work and meeting all of the other printmakers.  Thanks again to Penland, Diane Fine and Kathy Kuehn for giving me this opportunity.

Have a great day.

New Prints!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything, but I wanted to share some new works in progress.  Here are a couple of woodblocks I plan on printing this weekend.  My life has been extremely busy over the past year, but I hope to begin a more steady blog presence again.  I’ve also changed the look of the site and would appreciate any feedback.  Let me know what you think.

I Love My Job+Examples OF Printmaking In Glass Art

So, I’m a few weeks into my new job at Bullseye Glass, and I am having a blast.  I get to talk with artist’s about their work and process; I have learned so much about kiln-formed glass; and I really enjoy working with the people I work with.

One thing I am constantly impressed with at Bullseye is the drive to break new ground in regards to kiln-formed glass art, and how often this drive involves printmaking processes.

In todays post I’ll share some examples of this marriage by giving a shout out to Louise Krampien.  Louise works in the Research & Education Department at Bullseye and has developed a kiln cast glass making technique involving relief printmaking.  She is also teaching a course on this style here in Portland on August 17th.  Yesterday I set up a display of these pieces in the Resource Center to highlight the class and technique and was so impressed I feel it necessary to share.  They are amazing!

 

 

 

I’m scheduled to work two of the four days this course is going on and will most definitely be peeking in.

If you want more info on this class, here is the link:
