Look what WE did! Dragon Beads with Mary Lockwood 2013

Needless to say, the Dragon Beads took time and concentration!  With 9 torches and burners going, it was pretty warm in the studio!  But all had fun, learned many techniques that Mary shared with all, and her patient and confident style was appreciated by all!  She is a very talented lampworking artist!  Thank you Mary, Come again to Graceful Customs!

Holly Cooper will once again be here for a new 2 -day class on Surfaces & textures.  Here is her description of what she will be teaching:
"we will open ourselves to the exploration of a variety of special materials and techniques which I have developed in my own work over the last decade. We'll explore the use of enamels, metal leaf, texture and patina, flame chemistry, special properties of certain colors and other unique techniques. All of this is done to stimulate the imagination and generate new ideas by experimenting with technique and inspiration.
There will be plenty of personal attention with much time to practice and explore. Questions and discussions are encouraged." Class is $475 for Sat.&Sunday, Sept. 7 & 8, 2013.  E-mail for a registration form Here is her studio for you to see her beautiful work!
