MARYHILL MUSEUM OF ART SHOW - Finishing up!

Whew!  Getting the final work done for my show at Maryhill Museum of Art.   


These are glass medicine amulets and will go into a glass parfletche case.   I made these out of glass so they are mere representations and not items that can be used as "medicine".  I did these to convey a idea,  like a painting.  


The bird skull is hand sculpted glass and the arrow head is mahogany obsidian.  

Feels great getting this work completed!  Think I'll go for long run now :-)

MARYHILL MUSEUM OF ART SHOW


I am just finishing up my work for a exhibit of glass art of mine that will be taking place at the Maryhill Museum of Art in Goldendale Washington.  http://www.maryhillmuseum.org/2013/maryhill-museum-of-art-announces-2014-special-exhibitions  The exhibit will be from March 15th thru November 15th 2014.  I am very excited about it to say the least.  


This is one of the new works which will be in the exhibit.  Its been something I have had in mind for 8 years,  since I was Artist in Residence at Pilchuck Glass School.  Finally I was able to make this and some other works which have been in my brain for a long time wanting out.  


What this represents is a medicine bundle containing a golden eagle.  I don't like to make actual "Medicine" items ( I take these things serious ) unless they are going to the proper place and people.  So…this is merely a representation of what one might be.  It is not a copy of a existing bundle nor meant to be so.  It is a artistic rendition.  


Normally the tube parfletche would be rawhide so you would not see what was contained inside.  I wanted to make the container a suggestion and focus on the contents.  

Hope some of you out there can come and see the show :-)
