March News
I typically work with simple themes and forms, and often employ subtle silhouettes when making my totems. It is a pleasure seeing inanimate objects taking on a life of their own. The more narrative work is usually a personal expression or a means of processing a life event, often with a underlying statement.” –

Our annual fundraiser, Vitro Moda 12 is this month! In just a few short days we will be transforming The Ostruem in to our glass vision. We are excited to have Mark Leputa as our featured guest artist. Originally from Pittsburgh, and currently working in Alabama at Orbix Hot Glass, Mark’s sculptures reflect the influences of nature where simplicity, purity of form, and negative space is merged to meet harmony. We will also have a week long intensive class with Mark the week leading up to Vitro Moda. Links for ticketing for both Mark’s class and Vitro Moda can be found below.
