Hot Kiln Glass

 

 

Hot Kiln Fused Glass: The Egyptians and Romans used the technique of an ancient fused glass process. Many intricate bowls, beautiful jewelry and decorative fused glass wall art pieces were made throughout the centuries using this method. With glass technology artists now have a greater knowledge of the method and endless creativity flourishes in their work.

 

 

ArtisansHOTencasusticandshellacafterbeingfiredIMG_6756

Encaustic Close Up

 

Encaustic Hot Wax: The word “encaustic” is taken from the Greek and means “to burn in”. In the encaustic process, pigmented wax is applied and then fused to a surface with heat. The broad range of encaustic medium, paint, surface effects, mixed media and a luminous translucency make each piece of art one of a kind.

 

 

ArtisansHOThammered metal

 

Welding: Welding is a fabrication or sculptural process that joins materials, usually metals or thermoplastics, by causing fusion. In addition to melting the base metal, a filler material is often added to the joint to form a pool of molten material (the weld pool) that cools to form a joint pressure which may be used in conjunction with heat to produce a weld.

 

 

 

 

Soldering:  Soldering is a process in which two or more items (usually metal) are joined together by melting and putting a filler metal (solder) into the joint, the filler metal having a lower melting point than the adjoining metal.

Sculpture by Kelly Manganaro

 

Polymer Clay: Polymer clays are manmade modeling materials composed of the same basic building materials: gels, fillers, plasticizers, coloring agents, and resins. Polymer clays are produced in a great range of colors that are sometimes mixed together creating a millefiori caning effect. The artist makes the sculptured piece by hand and then brings it to its hardened state with a temperature of up to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

Fused Glass by Marsha Balbierri

 

Enameling: Enameling is the art of fusing glass to metal. Enamel is applied to clean metal.  The piece is heated in either a kiln or with a torch to a very high temperature of 1500, until the glass enamel melts and fuses to the metal.

Pottery by Tracy Rosof Petersen

 

Pottery and Ceramics:  Pottery has been made by hand since prehistoric times. Early uses of clay centered on the construction of functional vessels and figurative sculptures, as the clay was hardened by baking it in the sun. There are many different techniques used when working with the various selections of clay. After the clay is hand-built or turned on a potter’s wheel it is fired in a hot kiln. The piece is glazed and re-fired.
Raku is a low-fire pottery technique in which pieces are placed in a preheated kiln and brought up to temperature quickly. Then  a combustible material is added, covered, and allowed to smoke over a period of time. The element of surprise is always fun with the end results!

Erica Howat “Woven Vessel”

 

 

 

Erica Howat began taking classes and workshops in 2008 to learn fiber art techniques after ending her 30-year restaurant career. Howat started her studio residency at the Annex so she could have a space to experiment with design and technique with a focus of showing her work. Drawn to organic fiber, Howat expresses her attraction to texture and form through tapestry weaving, knotting, and basket making. Materials such as yarn, paper, twine, leather, ribbon, reed and natural flora, rocks, and pods are combined into the pieces. Erica said, “Inspiration from the form, texture, and wildness of certain materials brings about a creative flow to make a piece that emphasizes the unique, natural beauty that grows around us and which may otherwise be taken for granted.”

Sandra Kuba “Les Soeurs”

 

 

 

Sandra Kuba is a fiber and clay artist. She studies clay sculpture, hand building, and fiber art at the Armory Art Center and has traveled extensively to workshops to learn felting techniques. Sandra said, “I love how wool fibers are magically transformed, experimenting with a variety of raw wools and silks, and hand-felting by layering and building with unexpected materials.”

“Pastoral Universe” by Shawn Hall

 

Shawn’s artwork is often a reflection of the natural world, reminding the viewer that the Earth is in constant change. Her paintings express a loose, often ironically humorous, abstract representational style. Despite her ventures into different mediums, her paintings inform all of her work. These paintings loop back and revisit the familiar territory of the forms and processes found in nature.

“Cartier Watch” by Marilyn Samwick

The A.I.F.O’s goal is to work with the artists for the long term, assisting them through their careers by exhibiting their works in galleries and arranging placement in prominent public places such as commercial installations, fine dining establishments and private collections. A fresh exhibit will open monthly with a lavish Public Opening Reception, an art event that should not be missed!  A.I.F.O was established in 2013 by Jackee Swinson with the intention to help artists get their art shown in many public places.
