Here's what I figured - it's the International Festival of Glass, it's the rainiest summer ever (or feels like it) - let's dedicate an AOTM to all the glass artists whose work others might not have come across. Whether they are bead makers, flameworkers, fusers, casters, blowers...........post a pic, and make sure to post a link to the artist, too, if you can, so we can all go and explore some more.

I'll make a start to show you my favourite piece by Janis Miltenberger:



...and here's her website:

Here's a favourite artist of mine!
Nikki Carollo, she makes some of the cutest critters, and i must confess to owning a fair few of them!

Here's a group of lovely looking fellows she made recently from bullseye (she normally works in 104)

Here's a link to her website www.nlcbeads.com where you can find critters for sale and links to other places on the web you can find her  Grin

Wow, amazing work. I do LOVE those sculptural pieces of James Lethbridge in particular.
My nomination is back to much round shinyness and these simple but delicious ones really caught my eye today....

This is fun! I love James Lethbridge's work too. I came across Robert Kincheloe in the States and he's subsequently had a tutorial in The Flow. I have one of his marbles but I'd love a sculpture!

I would do anything to learn from Emma Varga. Check her out on google images as her website doesn't work from time to time.


Any more?  Seems to have stopped after me  Huh
