Marbling & Glass
- This message was originally from Joan in Australia, who meant to send
it to the group, but somehow it ended up only in my mail box, so I am just
forwarding it for all to enjoy.
Readers might be interested in the work of the Australian glass artist
Colin Heaney, who works in nearby Byron Bay. Much of his work shows
elements of stone and combed marbling patterns, inherent in both
disciplines where colours and liquids - in this case liquid glass -
are used. His site: http://www.colinheaney.com/index.html
In the gallery section two pieces, Petroglyphlidon Sphere and Botanica
Phasmid are shown as being in the Habatat Galleries, Chicago. In the
Archives section there are some stunning Coolamons (shapes from
Aboriginal containers originally made from bark), notably Lava and
Botanic Mortar, which look like swirled stone.
It seems that every art form flows effortlessly into another!
Great to have computer whizzes checking out sites for the rest of us.
