Christina Bothwell taught herself how to cast glass and work with ceramics after studying painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Her earlier work had a similar quality, but after incorporating cast glass into her sculptures, the pieces she created seemed to have more of a living quality. Humans and animals are combined to depict a transformation, while at times, the cast glass portions of the sculptures have represented the soul of a departed person or animal or even the spirit of a someone watching over. Christina's work has been shown in galleries across the United States as well as around the world. Visit her website to learn more about her and her beautiful sculptures.
As of October 2016, I intended to use this blog as an accompaniment to my Facebook page and Instagram page. On this blog I post information and updates about my work as well as once a month I highlighted an artist whose work I like (I stopped doing this when I opened my gallery www.GalleryBlueDoor.com). As of March 2017, I began posting a monthly Story Entry with an accompanying illustration of mine. In mid-2019 I took a break from this, but it will resume.
