What happens when you mix Wood, Glass and Clay??? You get an amazing, creative, new art form from three accomplished Artists. The collaboration of this one of a kind mixed media show started out as a friendship between fellow artists Pamela Carman, Carolyn Austin and Bill Jones sharing ideas and admiring each other’s designs.
They competed individually, at some of the same competitions, and won awards together. The list of their successes and their ability to teach, exhibit, and give back to the Palm Beach Art communities is commendable. They started talking, sketching, etching, cutting, turning and gluing………!!!!!!
Pamela Carman is a primarily self-taught mixed media artist. Pamela’s current body of work is in polymer clay and found objects. She has an affinity for color that is evident in her work and gets excited just creating her color palette! The majority of her work is inspired by and based in nature. Recurring animal themes, especially of birds and fish can be seen in her most recent work. They are meant to bring a smile or chuckle.
Teaching polymer workshops in South Florida, Pamela has been an instructor for the Ocean Reef Art League in Key Largo for the last 5 years. She also offers private and group lessons in her home studio. Her award winning work can be found internationally. www.pamelacarman.com
Bill Jones is a local wood turner with a workshop in Jupiter; He is a member of the Palm Beach County Wood turners, a local chapter of the American Association of Wood Turners. He spends his time teaching at adult education classes, 4H youth classes and creating a limited number of turning to show at various exhibitions and galleries. Every piece he turns is mad with not only a love of the wood, but also the delight in craftsmanship of taking a log to a finished and unique artistic object. You are welcome to watch him turn wood in his shop by appointment 561-762-1031. Come and enjoy the wonderful world of wood! www.woodturningbybilljones.com
Carolyn Austin began designing and creating glass art within the family business in 1986. She has built her reputation in the Palm Beach Community as one of the most unique glass etching artists in the area. Her showroom and studio are located in the Center Park Plaza in Jupiter.
Carolyn has lived in the Jupiter/Tequesta area since 1979 and developed an eye for the tropical Florida scenes from long legged birds to intensely detailed ocean life which in turn creates one of kind glass art. She tells us, “I love working with people and using my 25 years plus of experience to create a beautiful customized look in glass whether it be an entrance way or a free standing piece of glass art. All my designs are created by hand, an intricate detailed process to enhance each client’s home and personality. Making my glass art a personal favorite for each client is always satisfying. I take pride in my work and the exclusive following it has created.” www.uniqueglassart.com
