Kritters

'ello folks. I just thought I'd toss up a link to my kritters category on my online store, hopefully just to give you a smile on this dreary, dreary December day. These guys are a blast to make... still brainstorming the next one!

Ornaments

Well folks, tomorrow's December and you know what that means: time to get off our duffs and get moving with the Christmas shopping. Or, stay on your duff and check out my ornaments section of my new online shop!

A Lump of Coal

Got somebody on your list who has been kinda naughty this year? The do as Santa does, and smack 'em with a piece of coal this holiday season... except in this case the coal is a solid piece of hand sculpted glass, with a clear polished "viewing port" on the underside that looks up into the clear glass within.

I now have my very own online store

It's been a long time coming, but my new extra-special-and-smells-like-lilacs online store is open, and ready for pokin' around in. The goal of this store is to sell the same sort of pieces I've been offering in my Artfire store for the last year: pieces small or light enough to make shipping them both feasible and not outrageously expensive.

As of today, I've put mostly holiday based items up: ornaments, angels, wine stoppers, and other things that can either add to your own season or would make a great gift. I'm listing the rest of my studio at a pace of roughly a new piece per day, so eventually it'll be all up there and in the meantime there's new things to see all the time.

So please, poke around, let me know if you find any typos if you wouldn't mind, and hopefully enjoy it!

I made the Hamilton Spectator, my local newspaper and one of Canada's largest newspapers with a readership of over half a million. Also, they included a picture of me, which... well, I guess it's not that bad! Thanks to the Spectator for their article.

That's a nice write-up- hope your premier goes well and that it brings you some sales! I was interviewed for the news when I worked in child welfare and it was rather shocking to see/hear myself on t.v. I can't imagine seeing yourself on the big screen!

Open House - December 3rd and 4th, 10:00am to 5:00pm

A couple times a year I throw open my doors and invite the public in to see what I've been up to with my art. While I do have regular gallery hours, an open house is something different: special pieces are made to suit the season, new designs are unveiled for the first time, and there are goodies - sandwiches, treats and all sorts of edibles to munch on. More than anything it's a chance to touch base with the community and just have a fun time focused on glass art. Everyone is welcome, and if you're in the Hamilton, Ontario region I invite you to stop by and say hello.

Location and a handy map can be found at: http://www.kellyloweglass.com/Site-Stuff/Contact

The rather rambling letter sent to those on my mailing list can be found here: http://www.kellyloweglass.com/MailingList/Dec-1st-2011

Thank you, and I hope to see you there!

Hand Sculpted Glass Angels

I've been making these angels for almost as long as I've been a glassblower, and they've always been one of my most popular and favourite pieces. The crown features 23k gold leaf mixed throughout the glass, while the wings are made of coloured and textured glass. The body is solid, making these angels freestanding and quite sturdy. The average angel stands 12cm tall (4.75 inches), though with their being fully handmade without the use of molds there is some slight variations in height and appearance. It's what makes each piece one of a kind, so I think it's worth it!

Wine Stoppers

I've finished putting up my wine stoppers on my new online store, and I kind of like the way it worked out. The stoppers are food grade steel bases with hand sculpted glass tops, and will last for years and years. A nice Christmas Gift, or a fantastic midnight topper for New Year's Eve.

Tonnes of Handmade Ornaments

I've been working hard the last few weeks making ornaments for people's holiday celebrations. This little guy I've made for a while now, he's a fully hand sculpted glass bee which hangs from a glass loop attached to his back. There's also Queen Bees (has a crown) and Gentleman Bees (have tophats, naturally) for those who like their bees a little bit more "upper crust". This is just one of the ornaments I'm offering for this holiday season.

New Studio News (Blog) Post

So what began as a post focused on getting people thinking of glass art for Valentine's Day became a year end wrap up post. It's funny how it sometimes works that way: your mind has one idea, but when it comes to typing your fingers have the final say as to what comes out.
December 29th, 2011 - Holidays Are Over, Bring on Valentine's Day! I know I'm jumping the gun here by declaring the holiday season over, but seeing as how today is the last scheduled day my s...

Just a reminder for those who are interested: The short film I made with Cineplex Entertainment opened on the 1st of this month. The film, which features me demonstrating how I make a traditional hand blown ornament, is being played throughout December before all G and PG rated feature films in all Cineplex theaters. The link below takes you to my blog/news sections, which has more information. If you do see it, I hope you enjoy it!

Kelly Lowe Glass - Cineplex Film Press Release

There's a first time for everything, and this was my first time writing a proper press release. Self promotion doesn't come naturally to me, in fact it's something I struggle with, but this film really is a once in a lifetime event for me: if ever I've had reason to shout something from the rooftops, this is probably it. It feels weird writing stuff like this though... I think I just need to get into the hotshop soon to slog some hot glass around, maybe make a few new pieces, and just do what I love most.
