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.

Red Fissure Bowl

(2008)

If this was a suit it would be a tuxedo. Or a black evening gown if a dress!

Cathedral red on the bottom and black on top, the red “bleeds” through the top layer creating a unique chrystaline red effect.  16″ in diameter.

Festive Bowl



A very special festive and Holiday-inspired 16″ bowl! Brilliant red & green stripes accented by raised chunk frit on clear river-like streams.

This statement piece makes a fabulous focal point for a dining room table, buffet or foyer accent.


Resisting Conformity

(2008)

Aventurine Green and greeen cathedral glass are in agreement and at odds with each other in this whimsical 21″ circular “ball” vessel.

Passionate Synapse

(2009)

A sultry 16″ square decorative platter in solid black with deep red fissures.

There’s a lot of emotion going on in this work, both on and under the surface.

Perhaps the owner of such a piece can share this sentiment!

Funky Red & Green Hors D’Oeuvres Plate

(2008)

Brilliant greens and reds in this 16″ hors d’oeurves plate form striped patterns on a black background, complemented by large frit specks.

Maki sushi would look very temping served on this statement piece!
