Sea Stars or Starfish
About the artists:
Oregon is home to many glass artists, due in large part to the presence of several of the world’s major manufacturers of raw art glass materials and numerous glass schools.
This has given Bob Heath the opportunity to study with many of the leading artists in the field including; Avery Anderson, Marty Kremer, Richard LaLonde, among others.
Bob has been an active part of the Oregon glass community, serving on the board of directors of the Oregon Glass Guild since 2005, and as its state president.
Glass artist, Carolyn Myers, creates dichroic (pronounced “dye-crow-ick”) glass, two colored multicolored and reflective proprieties. She has lectured about her glass art during the Seaside First Saturday Art Walks at the Fairweather Gallery. Her next appearance is on June 5, 5-7:pm.
“When you look at this glass, it appears to have more than one color at the same time, especially when viewed with different lighting. The effect was originally created with trace amounts of gold and silver in a large glass melt, resulting in glass that only partially reflects light passing through it.”
D’arcy Martin is a NW fused glass artist who has been designing and creating for 20 years. Born with a restless, creative imagination, he has always ‘dabbled’ in the arts. Over the decades, nothing kept his interest long enough for it to reign supreme his wife signed him up for a glass fusing class.
A kiln was purchased, other crafts and arts were forsaken, and the glass journey had begun!
Now showing at the Fairweather House and Gallery, May 2021. And, too, his new glass will be featured during the upcoming Fairweather exhibition INTO THE BLUE, June 5-25.
