I've found drilling holes in glass to be very relaxing 🤷 With no end design in mind, I've been drilling holes in glass for weeks, kiln firing the glass to smooth it, then putting it in a container. I finally came up with a design I like.

Glass Dude! For the test piece with the scrap glass I just used a mix of blues, but for future dudes, I will be mixing different colors together. I can't take credit for the idea. Someone saw the cactus and wanted to know if I could make a person too. Since I've had some extra time on my hands I thought I'd give it a shot. The mold making for this was tough. The first mold, one week into the creation process, lost its head and the second mold exploded in my kiln during the last step which is the hardening firing. Third time was the charm. The arms and legs make it delicate so I have to figure out the final mounting.

Today's task is color sorting through 12 pounds of glass scraps I was gifted by a wonderful glass artist. It has been sitting in my basement for awhile, but I now have a fun project for it. Hopefully it works out and I have pictures soon 😊

I was able to go to my studio today and bring pieces home. It was nice to be in my space again but sad to know that I won't be able to share it with the public until possibly this Summer. I'll be adding lots of items to my website this week and am still offering free shipping.

Hazel Tree Design Studio

Today we will continue our Week 3 Showroom Vignette Virtual Tour with some familiar faces.

We have some fun new pieces from Jennifer L Worden Arts in our showroom. Jennifer repurposes bottles, jars and discarded dishware in her artwork. She melts, fuses and reshapes glass into unique forms inspired by nature. She also incorporates other repurposed materials whenever possible. We love these little trees and how they make us feel like Springtime. It’s fun to group a bunch of them together to make a little glass forest.

We’ve featured a few pieces from Doug Meyer of Rustbelt Rebirth over the past couple weeks. This corner cabinet follows Doug’s signature style of repurposing industrial shelving and sheet metal to create one-of-a-kind functional art pieces.

We’ve also showcased work from Light Up Labs in the previous weeks’ virtual tours. Those pieces were great representations of their creative repurposing of non-lighting-related items to produce artful illumination. These two gems, on the other hand, represent how they can take a vintage light, fix it up, rewire it and fit it with appropriate globes to give new life to salvaged fixtures.

Thanks for stopping by our virtual showroom, and stay tuned for tomorrow’s featured artists!

Week 3 of our Showroom Vignette Virtual Tour series is going to be lit! Metaphorically and literally. If you didn’t catch the last couple weeks of this series, be sure to scroll down our page and check out all the artists that we’ve featured so far. We’re making our way through the showroom, one vignette at a time, to share our Spring Show with you while our doors are closed and we’re working remotely during Governor DeWine’s Stay at Home order.

This week’s vignette features some more wall-mounted lighting from Light Up Labs along with some table lamps by Kevin Busta furniture and Peared Creation. We’ll show you some more furniture by John Strauss Furniture Design, Ltd., Norwalk Furniture, Laurie Shafer and Rustbelt Rebirth. You’ll see home decor by Totally Tangled Creations: By April Nicholson-Couch, Jennifer L Worden Arts, Sara Edwards and Grant Ederer, and visual art by Rachel Jernigan, and Tina Grondin, Nicole Schneider and Anna Chapman.

The video is just a quick view -- stay tuned throughout the week for close-ups and more details on each artist. Enjoy!

I'm taking this time to finally get to projects on my artistic "to do" list. Finally set up my drill press with a make shift glass drilling station thanks to a slice of a pool noodle and a Chinese takeout tray. Things were going great until I came across the the unlabeled tempered glass. Oh well, now I have some pre-cut glass for tree molds.

I was so looking forward to my first art event in New York (Rochester) but it has been canceled for obvious reasons. Here is a some eye candy from all of the wonderful artists and makers who were going to participate.

We're seriously bummed that we had to cancel the 2020 Spring show. But what's an even bigger bummer is the very real damage this situation does to the livelihoods of our artists. All of the upcoming live art events have been cancelled and that means no one can get art in person. BUT luckily. you can still see each and every one of our Artist's work right here in this album. Please support them online just as you would at the show, they need you more than ever! We'll be back in November, stay happy and healthy until then!!

After coming to terms with the new "normal" I finally fired my kiln. Thought I'd share my unexpected results. I used a discarded architectural window sample (@zerolandfill) that had a shiney grey coating. I ended up with light grey drops with tons of tiny bubbles. I haven't had this happen before and am pleased with the results. They will be wired and made into a mobile soon.

*UPDATE* Just received word that all new segments are on hold and that they are playing reruns for the foreseeable future. I'll post when I receive the new air date.

I've been holding off on this post because of the chance of a change, but as of now my interview with @newdaycleveland is scheduled to air 3/18 during the 10am hour. If/when I see an online clip, I'll post the link. This was an incredible opportunity for me that I am truly grateful for.

Today we sat down with worn glass artist Jennifer Worden, who discussed her motivation behind these charming, eye-catching pieces. Stay tuned for a video profile over the next week. Jennifer’s artwork is available online to purchase (jenniferlworden.com). It’s important that we keep supporting our local artists, retailers, restaurants and others.
