Personal Lexicon Journal Page


Lexicon is the use of words. In our exercise
"Personal Lexicon" we journal words to describe our likes.

My favorite way to display glass is marrying it to metal. I LOVE metals..in furniture as accents or just laying around rusting...better made useful rusting!

Glass is malleable and watching the different shapes evolve is so much a surprise...how it will turn out and what kind of use will become of the piece. One of my favorite uses for a glass vessel is to use it for candles. The glow of the flame through the glass is so pleasing. BOOKS...I am addicted to collecting them. All kinds: history books, art books, novels...and vintage magazines. The best pictures and ads come from vintage magazines.

My kiln has a special place with me. Without it I couldn't create glass in the warmer forms OR use the powdered glass for staining and enameling that fuse designs into the glass. Crates of glass ...I am fortunate to have these for use in artwork.

Pottery has a special fascination to me. Something as simple as clay, mud really, can become such beautiful works of art that have function!!! I love the colors of pottery the technical application in pottery I love collecting pottery...and one day I will learn to throw pottery too.

That is it for these pages for now...I do tend to go back and add things to my pages...and sometimes I place a new picture within the post...

I am a work in Progress...and apparently I will never be done.

your amazing work is inspiring! you must have strong hands to do the stained glass pieces...means you would probably make a good potter when you get around to learning to do that...I took one class in college and it takes a lot of work to learn, but so cool and endless possibilities! hope you do learn to work with clay some day...
