New Stuffs!

Green Orchid Bud Vase close webI am expanding the Hieropice product line, after a couple of years of awesome responses to our terrarium ornaments.  I used to do a lot of glass-etching in my youth, and started incorporating etching into last Winter’s ornaments.   During the holidays, I offered ornaments with etched designs and pressed botanicals.  I am now expanding my etched pieces to bud vases, lanterns, cruets (those dispensers for oil, wine, etc.) and more, that I offer at art markets and online at Hieropice.com and hieropice.etsy.com.  The pieces featureEtched Fiddlehead Frame 2 web the thematic elements customary of Hieropice, ferns, orchids, and bits of nature I fall in love with as I explore.  I create original drawings and etch them onto reclaimed glass, and, in the future, will create some pieces that incorporate more glass techniques (mosaic, stained glass, painted glass, etc.).  I hope you enjoy these new pieces, I am really enjoying creating them!

FYI, if you’re in Greater Boston, you can still register for one of my glass-etching workshops taking place on August 4th and August 27th, at the Presentation Foundation Community Center.  Pre-registration is required, and the registration link is here: http://bit.ly/29ztFz6

Make It Your Own: Glass-Etching Workshop

Olive bottle and blue bottle square web
If you’re in the Greater Boston area (or you will be in August), come to one of my workshops and make something awesome!
On August 4th (Thursday) at 6 PM and August 27th (Saturday) at 1 PM I will be teaching workshops on glass-etching at the Presentation School Foundation Community Center.  The Center is at 640 Washington Street, Brighton, MA, and we’ll be in the New Balance Room on the lower level.
We’ll take reclaimed glass and transform it using custom stencils we’ll create right there in the workshop.  Your own original artwork, permanently emblazoned on glass that you take home with you the same day.  A vase, perhaps?  An oil diffuser?  It’s up to you!
And no, you don’t have to be an artist to participate, I’ll teach you everything you need to know!  You can register here (registration is required, no drop-ins).
The workshops are 18+, because, you know, chemicals and all.  Safety gear will be provided.  I will be teaching terrarium-building workshops in August as well though that are all-ages, so stay tuned!
