Crickets, Cats and Treats

This past week has been a whirlwind in the studio.  I’m finishing the last push for a Glass Art in the Garden show at Red Butte Garden.  The work has to be dropped off tomorrow afternoon, and my last 6 animals are fusing now.

I gave several of my glass animals a redesign for this show, the black cat with painted mica patterns is fun, I have a white cat with gold fusing now.  The glass is from old light fixture covers, I’m excited to see how he turns out.

I also gave the cricket a redesign, this is version 2:

And a brand new one, I’m trying a chameleon.  I have serious doubts about how many tiny pieces there are and whether they will stay together properly.  I’ll let you know tomorrow!

I was also honored to donate this beautiful piece to the Friends of Great Salt Lake annual fundraising auction.  They are a great organization that is doing very good education and conservation work about the Great Salt Lake

And, last but not least, this Halloween we tried something a little different and offered trick or treater’s the choice of a book or candy.  I’m delighted to report that just over half of the kids chose a book!  Definitely doing that again.
