Building Monorhaphis chuni structures from powdered glass.  The image shown is from a couple years back.

Neo Lavender & The Lettuce Slug

The other day I shared Coral Morphologic’s ‘Natural History Redux‘ and came back to some previously felt inspiration. The Lettuce Slug. Look at it! Simply gorgeous. Sarcoglossans. The colour combinations are mad-crazy, and made me search through my glass powder collection at nanopod. Neo-Lavender! …with Spring Green and Olive Green sifted on top. I experimented… Continue reading Neo Lavender & The Lettuce Slug

It’s a gorgeous, early Spring afternoon here in Toronto. Temperature outside 12c Glass in the kiln.

I knew I should’ve ridden my bike home last night but after a savory dinner at Khao San Road I accepted my friend’s offer of a ride home. Once… Continue reading City of Craft: installation pt. 3

City of Craft: installation pt. 2

Wow! Total excitement as I unlocked the studio door and ran towards the kiln. Did it turn out? Better than I expected! As I knelt down praising myself and the universe for one experiment turning out I noticed the crack. Then another, and another gradually forming as the air hit it. Or, so I thought.… Continue reading City of Craft: installation pt. 2
