Several years ago, when I was working exclusively with kiln-fired glass, I did lots of art shows. Anyone who has done these art and craft shows will tell you … it’s not easy. I no longer do many shows – they’re just too difficult physically. The South Cobb Arts Guild has a two-week Christmas sale where you simply deliver your work ….. no complicated setup and take-down, no standing for hours and hours …. doesn’t get much better than that, right?
I submitted photos of some Ganutell pieces, and was accepted to the show. Now comes the task of creating lots of work to sell. While I tend to get a little overwhelmed when this happens, I also enjoy the opportunity to be creative with those lovely beads and decorative wires. I’ve often said that Ganutell gives us opportunity for unlimited creativity,and it’s true!
Lately I’ve enjoyed working with wire rather than prepared thread (watch for my mini e-book soon to be completed), so I’ve been experimenting with lots of fun ways to make the flowers. Here’s one made with gold wire and fiber optic beads, mounted with crushed sea shells.
I’m planning to share more photos of the pieces I’m creating for the show, so I hope you’ll visit often!
