News from LightGarden Glass Art 2016 is another record-breaking year! We collected 133 Flowers of Hope panels this year!!

A special thank you to our amazing Barbara Kelberlau and Diane Kobal, who not only completed 7 panels each, but came out to help hang the display!

The Lie You’ve Been Told – LightGarden Glass Art

What’s the lie you’ve been told all your life? And it’s probably been told BY you TO you…”I’m not artistic!” I hear this all the time from people in class…and then they go on to tell me that they make exquisite quilts or are a master chef. Everyone is artistic in some way. Just because you don’t paint with a brush or can’t draw a straight line…(that’s what they make rulers for)…everyone can create something. First, you have to BELIEVE that you can!

These are the new bottomless molds by Laurie Spray at Bonny Doon Glass Tools in Santa Cruz. They allow the glass to fall and hit the shelf. So far I’ve made several different size bowls and
