Definition: Aggregate is a collection of items that are gathered together to form a total quantity.

The fleeting moments of knowledge in which we discover our existence are facts that can be committed to memory. We can enlarge this aggregate memory and refashion it as we go through a lifetime. By saving these memories on paper and reconstructing the images of our lives. We see the art of our lives unfolding before us.

Face the brilliance of your most wonderful creations and dwell on your dreams.
I believe in teaching, the sharing of ideas and playfulness of creating.

Fairy Garden

Happy Monday morning to you... 

My Son and I created a fairy garden in our planter boxes this weekend. And it looks like we did a great job as we must have disturbed the Fairy's morning tea. 

More images to come. 
Have a splendid week.

New Glass Works for Art Access 300 Plates

Hello Creatives. 

These are new glass works that I have created for Art Access 300 Plates fundraiser, measuring 12"x8" each. 

300 Plates is a wonderful fundraiser for art education here in Salt Lake City. Art Access' moto is, "Art is for Everyone".  I really like that-!! I am sure you already know I believe in that type of thinking. 

The first two are are created with a reverse painting technique that I created using powder glass and then hand drawing with enamels with a quill pen. Then firing the enamel into the surface of the glass. 

The last piece I have used stringer accessory glass to create the striped pattern and detail textures on the surface of the glass. 

Hope you had a wonderful creative Holiday weekend. 
Be well.

Happy April 1st.....

Hello Loves.....

I have missed you. :]
No fooling here.

This is what I have been up to. Making some class schedules and new curriculum for new classes for the UofU and Pioneer Craft House here in Salt Lake City.

I will be starting to teach my new four day Journal class on April 7th meeting once a week. The image above are the 16 reference techniques that we will be doing in class. Oh my it was hard to choose just 16. I will share more images from my coming classes.

I am ready to play again. Thank you for keeping track of me and an interest in what I have been up to.
Much love to you today on this practical joke day.
Keep a light heart.
