A Beautiful Collection

I visited my cousin yesterday and with her permission photographed some of their art. Then I asked if she minded if I posted it on the blog. My cousin and her husband have travelled extensively and their collection is astonishing. The first image is made of small glass pieces. Even the hair and eyebrows are glass.

I didn’t get the names of the artists and I’m sorry for that. They offered to find their list but I was already being overbearing. This couple is all handmade clay, fired and painted. It has a real impact when you stand in front of it. All these pieces are quite large.

Hard to see that this is layered and etched glass.

Some comic relief.

This one knocked my socks off. Probably six feet tall and very imposing yet soothing.

This was by a student of Robert Arneson. The bowl holds faces of this artist’s teachers. There’s also a face on the back.

They have a lot of great painting too. This is a closeup of one I wanted to tear off the wall.

I hope you enjoyed the brief tour. There was so much more but these were some of my favorites. Have an A-1 day!
