The reception for Plum Bottom Pottery & Gallery’s Art Show 8: Glass is Aug. 5, 1 – 4 pm. The show features glass artists Josephine Geiger, Rose Klemen, Sarka Evans and Kellie Hanson. Geiger will hold a leaded glass demonstration from 1 to 2 pm and will detail her design and cutting process. A reception with the artists will follow from 2-4 pm with a chance to meet Geiger and Evans.
Geiger’s delightful leaded glass panels bring clouds, skies, trees and water to life with brilliant and dynamic colors. Her contemporary, geometric compositions are influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright.
Evans’s beautifully framed mosaics are inspired by the scenes outside her window and the stunning Lake Michigan landscape.
Klemen’s functional and decorative fused glass works are evocative of the ocean, wind and flowing volcanic fire. Inspired by the natural forces, she uses rich blues, greens and warm golden browns to create depth and mystery.
Hanson, a self-taught Michigan artist, describes creating mosaics as a delightful glass puzzle. Her playful colors and textures include glass, tiles, mirror, beads, old and new china, and found objects all coming together to create one-of-a-kind works of art.
Plum Bottom Pottery & Gallery is open 10 am – 5 pm daily. To visit go 15 minutes north of Sturgeon Bay or five minutes south of Egg Harbor on Highway 42 then east to 4999 Plum Bottom Rd.
