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 intend to use this blog as an accompaniment to my Facebook page and Instagram page. On this blog I will post information and updates about my work as well as once a month I will highlight an artist whose work I like. Additionally, as of March 2017, I will begin posting a monthly Story Entry with an accompanying illustration of mine.
