So after nearly a year of prototypes, changes and negotiations, Aspen Light Glass is going to be featured at the US Senate Gift Shop in Washington DC just in time for the spring cherry tree blossoms :) It is something quite different from the usual in that we are using stencils and powders to create the Capitol silhouette and then building the cherry tree blossom vignette in classic stringers and frit. Hopefully we can get it all wrapped up and shipped out before the blossoms emerge, but in the crazy climate change weather these days, who knows when it will actually happen. According to Punxsutawney Phil, I have at least 6 weeks to go before the spring event.
Welcome to the blog! I am the artist and gallery owner, Diane Quarles. I will post day-to-day outcomes and events here so you can see what is going on in the studio this month.
