Our first hand-blown glass poster
Left: Belle Mead Hot Glass, "Blown Shad", 11 x 17", Hand-blown blue and speckled glass shad by artist Robert Kuster. (Adhered). Projects about 3 inches from board. A full size glass fish!
Robert has been working for over 15 years from his studio on Route 202 in Hillsborough, NJ and was an award winning wood worker prior to that. The majority of the works produced today by Belle Mead Hot Glass, LLC. are large glass sculptures and chandeliers for commercial institutions, corporate offices, casinos and fantasy destinations like Disneyworld. They even have installed decorative glass for red carpet after parties in LA.
Thanks Robert and Sheila for your donation! Visit their site:
Right: Leilani M. Scurti, “Them Bones”, 11 x 17", Watercolor and pencil painted directly on to the board. Her work of subtle color and pencil has the feel of 'outsider' art. Really nice technique.
Leilani is a familiar face around town working at both the Chocolate Box and Milcrest Antiques.
