IBH Guild Featured Artist GlassSculptureOrg

Its Glass!!! Enough said!

No, seriously, if you even half way know me, you probably know I love glass! And hand blown glass rates right up there at the top of the list.  Finding wonderful creations by Joy Alyssa Day of GlassSculptureOrg was very enjoyable.  This delightful woman switched collage majors her junior year from computer, science, math to Theater, Costume Design, and went on to painting and then ventured even further and learned how to work with glass!  Yeah! I can tell you,  switching from that "career field" to an artistic one part way through school is a little scary (for a moment or two!).  But, at the same time, you know deep inside you it's something you HAVE to do!
Ok, I'll shut up now - well sort of!
Of course I'm going to start with an ornament! Love this unique Blown Saturn Christmas Ornament 
I'm not sure that I'd put this one away in the box of ornaments, it would probably hang in a window all year! (Oh, yes I do!)

Living in the desert SW having a Flaming Salsa Bowl would be fun to have! and then maybe some scrumptious ice cream afterwards! Of course wash it out 1st hehe.   Although, salsa flavored ice cream...........................no!

This is totally awesome! This Fused Glass Tile Pendant - Waves is created from a detail of one of Joy's original paintings which you can see here http://glassnebula.com/waves.html.

I'm inspired!

You can also visit Joy here http://bengalmania.org/  and here http://joysblog.glassnebula.com/

These 3 items are just a small sampling of her beautiful creations, I do recommend you go visit her studio GlassSculptureOrg

Have a glimmering day!

For fun, New Mexico, my home state, consumes more chili peppers (in various forms) than any other state in the US.  and yeah, I do add to that statistic!

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! The Saturn ornaments are pretty new, I just started making those this past Christmas, and they're very fun to make and people love them. I have three of them on my table right now! LOL Thankfully, my cats don't care about Saturn! Peace, Joy
