Every Sea Shell has a Story….

Artist Fire Circle

Sea shells tell a story ~ each beautiful, each perfectly intricate. If you press a seashell against your ear and listen carefully, she whispers the secrets of her life journey.

I am mesmerized by the way Gerry from Eagle414 expresses stories in the sea shells she collects. You can see how much she loves these sea shells in each unique piece that is created. Here are a couple examples of her art, just click on the pictures for more information:

Ocean Beach Glass

Jenifer Liput is one of my very dear friends and a team leader on Rainbow Artists Team.

Jenifer is a very talented artist and a very busy woman. She makes very beautiful glass art. Today I would like to show you a couple of my favorite pieces.

But before we get to that here is something from Jen.

CREATE – MelT – and be TIMELESS

Greetings and salutations from Ocean Beach Glass in the Golden State., From the Bay to the Coastal mountains of Northern California. I follow sunsets and daydreams, my world is what I make and my passion for this fire work is more than deep, but a need in my heart to be part of. I often have sand in my shoes and you’ll find I’m truly the most happy when I’m working and being a family at the same time; to be with each hand in hand. Music and the Earth and Skies Inspire me. Though I have worked with many art forms and crafts all my life, Glass is my medium of choice as it allows me to flow freely like the movement of the liquid of the earth that connects us all. A little science and a little art, allowing my mind to grow with every time I see the light of the torch. I’ve always been a serious knowledge seeker, and visionary artist.. and glass.. well glass, it’s like honey, and can drip like water. In melting, allows you to transform it into whatever my heart desires.

I’m grateful for the support of the people who truly collect my glass marbles and stirs. Thank you Thank you Thank you. Especially my return customers who loyally come back to me time and time again.

My Ocean Beach Glass Listings and Etsy store have been pictured in the 2015 Better Homes and Gardens May 2015 magazine issue and you can find me published in the winter 2014 issue of the Flow Magazine., a glass magazine for the flame working community and Featured in the Women in Glass issue and the 2015 Marbles and Paperweights Issue of the Flow Magazine.
