I recently joined the online gallery of artists at Western Colorado Journeys magazine (cover above). Several of my premier pieces are displayed online (http://www.westerncoloradojourneys.com/artist.php?userid=44) and will be published in their annual guide in March. Please visit the site to see some great artwork and great wines all from the Western Slope of Colorado.
As promised, several of the completed pieces from Patty Gray's week-long workshop at D&L Art Glass Supply in Denver. Patty is an outstanding teacher and I would recommend her classes to anyone at any level in glass fusing. D&L was also a perfect host and provided excellent class space and support (shameless plug but true!).

My new mega-kiln allows me to do large drapes and slumps. I had some gorgeous Bullseye fracture/streamer glass and millefiori from another piece that I fused into an 18" draped vase. Although it is a larger piece than I am used to working with, it finished in a graceful form and bold color. I do love working in Bullseye Glass! Someday when I grow up to be a successful glass artist, I can work exclusively in Bullseye. But for now, it is the exception, not the rule.
