I couldn’t be more excited!  Robin and I now have more freedom than we’ve had in a very long time to commit to making the art we’ve really wanted to make.  For all of the good things I can say about the art fairs (it’s one of the rare ways independent artists can survive on the making of their art) it can be confining to your creativity because of the requirements to show in your booth, work that is highly consistent with what you juried into with some 6-9 months previous.

I’m now exploring wire sculpture (started last year) which I’ve been interested in for a lifetime.  It’s really invigorating.  Seen here is a photo of my latest wing for a mid-size dragonfly in process.  MatusiakSharon#4MatusiakSharon#3.jpg  This other photo is a detail shot of a 3’x3′ dragonfly I made last fall.

Robin is working on enhancing the walls at Growing Media to showcase our work and beautify their television sets.

So much is happening right now–we’re in the process of obtaining a third kiln–to accommodate much larger enamel and cast glass to add to our work.  I’m finishing commissions for the close of the Twitch Series–more on that later.  We will continue to collaborate, but in less of a production way.  I’m designing new work (besides the insect sculptures) for Jewelry For The Wall–got ideas bulging out of my head.

  1. Wonderful to know that you & Robin are opening new doors in your creative world. Staying productive is key to being happy. We left the art festival world 5 years ago & never looked back.
