Trip to Santa Fe
Here are the highlights of the trip so far:

Visits to three artists’ studios, including

  • Emily Brock (www.emilybrock.com) who creates wonderfully detailed, often whimsical “rooms” of all types in glass
  • Elodie Holmes and her Liquid Light studio (www.liquidlightglass.com).  Elodie does beautiful work that is both cast and blown, sometimes in collaboration with a metal sculptor.  We’ll also meet some of the other artists at Liquid Light.
  • Charlie Miner and his Tesuque Glassworks (www.tesuqueglass.com).  Charlie makes fabulous cast glass pieces reflecting nature and the environment, often featuring fish and frogs.  We’ll meet Charlie and several of the other artists at Tesuque.

Two other artists will discuss their work during gallery visits

  • At Lewallen Galleries Lucy Lyon will speak (https://contempglass.org/artists/entry/lucy-lyon for a great article about Lucy and photos of several of her pieces).  Lucy, who was originally famous for her “library” pieces, now creates terrific, larger scale cast sculptures, often featuring people in very enigmatic situations
