I belong to a co-op gallery in Silverton, Oregon called Lunaria Gallery. Each of the 25 artists are beyond talented and I feel so lucky each time I get to visit one of their studios. Since I’m a fine art photographer (and a pet photographer), I use outdoor light. I own lots of lenses and several tripods but no big lights and ergo – no studio. So I’m always fascinated by all the cool things artists use to create their work.
The other day I went to Robert’s studio to photograph a glass mobile he is working on for a show the two of us will have at the gallery in April (more about that in my next post). Robert spent thirty years as a welder and he uses that talent with flames to create whimsical glass pieces like mermaids and turtles as well as commissioned glass buttons and beautiful glass earrings. Robert also works with clay, using various molds and carving tools to design wonderful bowls. I took a few quick snaps while in his studio….hope you like this short tour. Enjoy!
