Cosmos Sculpture II

I just completed this fused glass sculpture for display and sale for the remainder of my PRAXIS Gallery show in Toronto’s Queen St. West arts district (running to December 30th, 2011).

“Cosmos” recently sold, a lovely creative compliment. It’s been replaced on display with Cosmos II.

This piece is based on the success of Trinitas, a 3-piece sculpture I made with fellow friend and King Township artist Ernestine Tahedl, now on display and for sale at the new Woodstock Gallery on Dundas Street until January 15, 2012.

You can merely drive by PRAXIS Gallery at 1614 Queen St. West (at Sorauren), and see for yourself. (Click here for map to gallery).

NOTE:  As I have rented the gallery, you may deal directly with me at your choice as there are no commissions paid to the gallery owner.  Contact me here. 

Cosmos II measures approximately 20″ wide, 16″ high and 4″ deep.

“Cosmos” Sculpture

The only way to describe this self-standing sculpture is to look at it (my written description is failing!)

I made this sculpture specifically for display and sale at my PRAXIS Gallery show in Toronto’s Queen St. West arts district (running through to December 31, 2011).

This piece is based on the success of Trinitas, a 3-piece sculpture I made with fellow friend and King Township artist Ernestine Tahedl, now on display and for sale at the new Woodstock Gallery until January 15, 2012.

You can merely drive by PRAXIS Gallery at 1614 Queen St. West (in Parkdale at Sorauren), day or night, and see them for yourself. (Click here for map to gallery).

Below is a slideshow of the sculpture. I can assure you it is even more mesmerizing in person!

THIS PIECE IS NOW SOLD! I make much of my work custom so please Contact me if you like this piece.

Funky Pendant Lights!

Clear fused glass with black accents and whimsical kiln carving, “draped” over a mold.

I made this unique pendant light set specifically for display and sale at my PRAXIS Gallery show in Toronto’s Queen St. West arts district (running through to December 31, 2011).

One fixture has a chrome finish; the other, in antique brass. I like the eclectic nature of this effect: both fixtures are nearly identical, but not quite; the same goes for the fused glass shades themselves – both are different, and you must see them up close to tell!

You can merely drive by PRAXIS Gallery at 1614 Queen St. West (in Parkdale at Sorauren), day or night, and see them for yourself. (Click here for map to gallery).

Below is a slideshow of the set. You’ll see one photo shows a reproduction “Edison”-type light bulb used instead of a standard clear bulb – looks even better!

Trinitas: Collaboration with Ernestine Tahedl with “pARTners” O.A.C. Programme

Fellow King artist Ernestine Tahedl and I produced a collaborative fused glass sculpture as part of a premiere developmental programme developed and sponsored by the Ontario Arts Society and the Woodstock Gallery.

It was held:

Saturday November 19th, 2:00 pm
The Woodstock Art Gallery
449 Dundas Street
(click for map here)
(click here for invitation)

The programme saw multiple venues for exhibit, including the Aurora Cultural Centre and the John B. Aird Gallery in Toronto.

Click here for the full tour schedule.

But in addition: The City of Woodstock was be celebrating the official opening of the new Woodstock Gallery at this venue. City, Federal and Provincial representatives who funded this new, world-class cultural asset will be on hand for the plaque unveiling.

The image below of Trinitas was the first released image of our work, to compliment the two images published in the catalogue.

Ernestine prepared a full colour catalogue for the tour that could be viewed free and purchased online, or at the launch.

I prepared a separate post that talks in some detail with images about the programme and our test sculpture “Two Solitudes” that resulted in “Trinitas”. Click here to read it.

We’re happy to say that Two Solitudes sold at the recent Schomberg Village Street Gallery to a private collector. The original intent for pARTners was for all ten collaborative pieces to be auctioned at the Woodstock launch; it was decided that ownership would stay with the artists.

Trinitas is available for sale directly from us, including the custom mirrored base that supports the pieces.

An individual work of all artists tours with the show. In my case, Deco! (click here for more on this piece) was also on display, and is available for sale.
