Functional, handmade Art: Mug by Cynthia Zmetronak

 

 

 

 

Cynthia Zmetronak has been working in clay nearly as long as she can remember. Having a mother who dabbled in clay, and a father who built her first wheel helped nurture her inner mud pie girl. She was also fortunate enough to grow up during a time when art classes (including clay), were part of public education, from elementary school through high school. Her post public school education involved the arts. College provided a clay studio with unlimited access and she was hooked on clay. She then went on to earn a Master’s in Art Education and teach in both private and public schools, where clay became an important part of her curriculum.

 

 

Decorative handmade Art by Cynthia Zmetronak

 

 

“Utilitarian and whimsical decorative pieces are my passion”. Although her style has evolved and become more refined over the years, she still makes a line of comical canine and feline utilitarian pieces.  Cynthia is proud to be showing her work at Artisans on the Ave in Lake Worth and looks forward to meeting visitors.

 

 

 

Handmade Pottery by Cynthia Zmetronak

 

“These pieces reflect the humor I find living with a large rescue dog and several domesticated feral cats.” She says “working with clay makes the difference in my day”. How you will interact with my pottery; a lid that fits, a teapot that pours, a mug that feels good in your hand, a bowl that is used for your table, are part of my thought process and studio practice. My enjoyment and funfillment as a maker, comes from people using and enjoying my ware.  As a committed lifelong learner, I will always be a student and a teacher.”

Phil Materio tells The Rickie Report, “We found inspiration in the design aesthetic which has made South Florida a mecca for artists of all kinds. Bright pops of color, tropical weather, and design and architecture from the neighboring cities of both Palm Beach and South Beach provided us with ample inspiration”!

The FLORAdia Glass is now available at McMow!

Stay tuned for our upcoming class schedule. We will be releasing special classes which will include exciting ways to use this one-of-a-kind sheet style!

 

 

FLORAdia Glass: A Bullseye/McMow Collaboration!

In collaboration with Bullseye Glass Co, McMow worked to create a this one-of-a-kind art glass sheet style. This custom, hand-rolled glass is used for all types of art glass including kiln-formed (fused), mosaic, and stained glass.

 

 

Phil Materio, Vice-President of McMow Art Glass knew that he wanted glass that would feel like South Florida. We pulled inspiration from the colors, art and architecture that have made both South Beach and Palm Beach so famous. When the colors came together it was exactly what he had envisioned – a perfect blend of the these two stunning destinations. He decided to name the glass after his mother Flora Materio. Flora lived in South Florida and often times traveled with Phil to both South & Palm Beach to see McMow’a installations in both areas. Remembering these trips he knew immediately FLORAdia was the perfect name for this new glass creation.

Phil shares, “While I have fond memories of my mom in Florida, it was really her encouragement that led me to immerse myself in the art glass world,” said Phil Materio, Vice President of McMow Art Glass. “I couldn’t think of anyone I would like to honor more than my mom on our 40th anniversary year. She was one of the big reasons McMow even came to be.”

 

 

How is art glass made:

 

“We worked alongside the glass crafter at Bullseye to determine which colors would be compatible with each other. Bullseye has a very similar business model – also getting started about 40 years ago. Like McMow, they know that art glass is a fine art and have pushed the envelope of working with glass year after year”.

 

 

Here’s a video about glass making at Bullseye

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DO7584g57z0

 

 

Glass is made by melting together several minerals at very high temperatures. Silica in the form of sand is the main ingredient and this is combined with soda ash and limestone and melted in a furnace at temperatures of 1700°C. Other materials can be added to produce different colors or properties.
What is Art Glass? colored glass that’s manufactured for use in art and architecture. This type of glass can be used for stained glass and mosaic work, and most are tested-compatible for fusing and other methods of forming glass within a kiln.
