Gotham Studio

Link to Renovation History of Gotham Glassworks Studio by Greg Locke

Be sure to check out “Reno History – Gotham Glassworks”.

Almost half the fun of viewing Greg’s fused and stained glass works is where they are conceived and where they are displayed for sale.

Gotham Glassworks exists in what was the second story hayloft of a 30 x 18 foot heritage horse barn in downtown Schomberg, Ontario. The bottom floor is used for traditional storage of garden tools and supplies; all the “action” takes place up the stairwell, through the red screen door to your left. Continue reading Gotham Studio

Morning Smile

You may recognize the Aventurine Green and cathedral green glasses from Resisting Conformity, used here with a different flare and with a chrystalline finishing effect providing a whimsical translucence.

Morning Smile is 13″ wide x 34″ high.

Something Blue

(2009)

An elegant 15″ plate made from light blue opalescent glass and striking darker cathedral glass.

If you like this Mariner Blue decorative work, you may also like Something Blue Too, made with a similar theme.

King Blooms Banner 2009

Greg’s River Flows Through It (2001) has been selected as the 2009 branding piece of King Blooms, King Township’s organizing committee of the national Communities in Bloom organization.

Greg with River Flows Through It and King Blooms Banner 2009
King Weekly published an interview with Greg on his inspiration for River Flows Through It, used as the King Blooms Banner 2009.

The image below is a sample banner for this year’s organization – it will hang on light standards in all major towns across King Township to promote awareness of this campaign from May through October.

On the request of the King Blooms Committee, Arts Society King (ASK)  selects one piece of art each year from a King Township artist, preferably from a medium not featured previously.  This will be the fourth year ASK has been, well, “asked” to perform this duty.

ASK’s Board was impressed by the work’s metaphors of the history of our rural area (by the gothic window shape); the natural colours utilized to convey a sense of our community’s passion for nature and preservation; and the flowing clear bands of glass signifying the interrelationships, power and beauty between them.

Greg is delighted to have this work featured so predominantly within King for the majority of 2009.

See River Flows Through It here. See the full banner image below and further down, the Banners proudly displayed on Main St. Schomberg.
