February News
As an artist my focus has been with the vessel. In the vessel, I find the form to be of primary importance. It holds the space. In a sense, the vessel is a “history of my breath”: It contains the volume within. If I have done things correctly, the profile of the piece is a continuous curve; the shape is full, and the opening confident. Color is often the “joy” in making a piece. I want the colors to glow and react with each other…”
Thanks to every one that came out to the January Open Studio Night. We had fun rolling up murrini, and then creating surface distortion. Images from the evening can be seen
Our annual fundraiser, Vitro Moda 12 is just around the corner. This year 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.
Thank you to The Loop, Cat City Grill, The Ostreum and Elevated Content for your support!

Join us the second Friday of each month from 6p-9p as we host an
open studio night at SiNaCa. This is your chance to find out more about the “magic” that goes in to creating glass art. As the artist creates their work we give you an interactive play by play, so you can understand better why they do what they do. Our on site gallery showcases our featured artist to give you a close up view of what they create. Its also the perfect time to find out how you can get involved in learning how to work with glass.
