Please join us in seeing over 70 works of new art,  6″x6″x6″ ,that push the boundaries of the artists imagination. The artist’s discovery of joy in the reduction of scale enables them to express themselves with change, realizing good things come in small packages.

When working on such a small scale it heightens the margin for error and enables the artist to get close to their selected medium.

"Twist" by William Halliday

“Twist” by William Halliday

 

 

William Halliday’s artistic vision is founded in early creative design work, when he and his business partners established themselves as creators of unique and outstanding artistically built environments, which among other projects created fascinating restaurant and commercial interiors and exclusive night clubs.

 

"Recline" by William Halliday

“Recline” by William Halliday

 

In 2002, Halliday moved his company to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, where he utilized his professional career experiences and innovative vision to attract clients from the Mid-East and all over the world. Throughout his career in the design business, Halliday also has designed and built custom motorcycles, planes, race cars and motor boats and the resultant fabrication skills that he developed are continually evident in his artwork.

Halliday currently works on metal sculptural objects in his Northwood Village studio, which adjoins the gallery space. His design philosophy centers on a three-dimensional approach to transforming utilitarian materials and spaces into attractive public visual statements, which also incorporates his unique set of professional skills as an artist concentrating on sculpture.

Tracy Rosof-Petersen Removing a large ceramic bowl from the kiln

The technique of Raku pottery happens when art is removed from a gas kiln at around 1800 degrees with gloved hands and tongs lifted from burning flame, dropped into a metal container with combustibles. The glaze crackles from the heat of the flame.

Marcia Barbieri's Fused Glass Plate

Marsha Barbier’s Fused Glass Plate

Ceramic artists form their art using clay and prominent, striking glazes that are fired in a kiln numerous times. Exciting, magnificent colors are produced when glazes are applied to bisque clay, re-fired up to 2300 degrees in a red hot kiln.

Ceramic by Joan Carew

Encaustic wax is an age old process using hot wax and oils. Hot wax painting involves beeswax to which colored pigments are added and kept molten on a heated palette. After being applied to an absorbent surface, you create an original piece of art. The fun part of encaustic wax is adding mixed media inclusions, photos or any absorbent material. The possibilities are endless.

 

"Past The Garden Gate"

“Past The Garden Gate”, Encaustic Painting by Lois Barton

 

 

 

A metal artist using a welding torch combines the cool metal pieces to the heat of the torch to create sculptures or functional pieces such as lamps and furniture. Some of our paper artists brandish the edges of their finished assemblages to give them an aged antique look as the heat of the flames burns the edges.

 

Metal Sculpture by Kelly Dean Manganero

Metal Sculpture by Kelly Dean Manganero

 

Jewelry artists achieve an individual look in their pieces by using heat. When jewelry is connected together with a soldering tool the heat presses against the cool metal to join the pieces. A different patina is created with flame and various chemicals used make each piece a unique form of art to wear.

 

 

Glass Beaded Necklace by Irene Jalowayski

Glass Beaded Necklace by Irene Jalowayski

 

Artists that work with various woods can create a very different effect with a selected branding or engraving tool. The wood branded with the heat tool will then achieve an interesting design or sometimes a personalized engraving. The finished piece has a special look that compliments the wood used.

 

"Cool Jazz" Fused Glass by Betty Wilson

“Cool Jazz” Fused Glass by Betty Wilson

Our glass artists use various techniques such as glass formed with the HOT flame of a torch, glass blowing, casting and fused glass in a kiln firing. Fused glass is one of the oldest, sophisticated techniques in hot glass sometimes referred to as “warm glass”. It is an exciting interplay of light and color to look in the glowing red hot kiln and see the soft molten liquid melting together in brilliant form.

 

Gabriele Kraus' Ceramic Sculpture

Gabriele Kraus’ Ceramic Sculpture

One of the biggest thrills of firing a kiln is fifteen hours later when the artist opens the kiln lid and views the fascinating and extraordinary design that has emerged! Due to the handcrafted nature of many techniques used and the multiple series of kiln firings at temperatures ranging from 1200 to 2300 degrees, this makes ceramics and glass one of a kind art  – where no two pieces are ever alike.

Suzanne explains to The Rickie Report, “What I love about fiber art is the surprise element – the mixture of the fabric, the dye and the resist create different combinations of results that are only revealed at the final step…the magic when the freshly dyed indigo comes out of the vat and turns from green to blue right before your eyes! It is always a surprise when I unwrap a freshly dyed piece of fabric! I currently specialize in Shibori and Batik. For me, these art forms are an excuse to use vibrant colors and simple shapes to produce designs, without having to worry too much about the details –just as in life, there are no “mistakes” with fiber, and everything is always subject to change. The imperfections are all part of the creative process. I’m always learning new techniques and experimenting so I can share them with my students. Every piece created is a unique one of a kind original!”
