Donald Carlson Sculpture:
Until 2007, Donald Carlson's line of vases, bowls, and lamps were the mainstay of his business. He and his wife, Karen, work together in their studio in Oregon. By accident, Karen brought Donald too much glass for the stem of an apple he was working on. As he pulled the stem up to cut, he saw a cherry. His whimsical grouping of cherries, ranging from 6" to 24", has put fun back into the art of making glass. The cherries are bright and fresh, and they delight everyone.
Donald Carlson's work spans 5 decades and, in 1966, he created one of the first private studios in the world. While working with color, red, especially, has been both challenging and rewarding. "With over 42 years of experience, I have developed clean, well proportioned and eloquent shapes. In particular, it is my red glass that best reflects the Carlson tradition." Donald Carlson has consistently produced a rich vibran ... (more)
Frogman - Tim Cotterill Sculpture:
Tim Cotterill's bronze frog sculptures capture the whimsical character, the jewel-like quality, and the pure JOY of these beautiful little creatures.
"Through the centuries and throughout the world, frogs have symbolized many things--good luck, royalty, fertility, magic potions, energy, charm. In today's fast world, life sometimes becomes complicated and stressful. As you can see, my art is not," states the artist, also known as Frogman. "It's elegant, stylish, whimsical, unique, and pure FUN! As children we were excited to see our first frogs. They made us laugh when they jumped our way! We were curious about the strange way they felt; the odd way they moved and their simple contented look. I used to watch frogs at my pond in England, noting how each one had its own color markings, character and even personality."
Tim Cotterill was born in Leicester, England, in 1950. He left sch ... (more)

Thad Markham Sculpture:
Artist Thad Markham is a California native, born and raised in the mountains of Southern California. His youth was spent skiing competitively every winter and racing around Big Bear Lake on jet skis and water skis all summer. Santa Barbara was the next stop, as Thad pursued an engineering degree at UCSB. He worked in his field for a mercifully brief time before striking out for more exciting pastures as an entrepreneur. Thad moved to Cambria, California in 1992.
Years of hard work and long hours later, his business a roaring success, Thad's ever-active mind sought new challenges. It all started with the bananas. One bright sunny morning he was sitting at breakfast and his glance fell on a bunch of bananas on the table. "That's funny," he said to himself, "it almost looks like they're dancing." Thus began his preoccupation with the secret lives of fruits and vegetables...he began haunt ... (more)

Ira Reines Sculpture Sculpture:
Philosophy, cosmology and the sublime beauty of the works of Michelangelo, Rodin and Bernini are the inspiration from which Ira Reines draws to create his profound sculptural thesis on the relationships of order and chaos to man and divinity.
Ira Reines was born in New York City on December 3, 1957. At nineteen, one of Reines' sculptures caught the eye of the director of the Medallic Art Company of Danbury, Connecticut who offered him employment sculpting medallions. In 1980, Ira Reines was hired to work with Art Deco Master Erté, considered by many as the father of Art Deco. Ira worked closely with Erté, translating the master's two-dimensional designs into seventy bronze sculptures that were sold world-wide.
Upon Erté's passing in 1990, Reines returned to his own sculptural vision exploring the relationship between man and the cosmos, order and chaos and the sublime divine beau ... (more)
M.L. Snowden Sculpture:
For the young Snowden living in New York City, part of the positive potential of sculpture was nurtured through family friends Salvador Dali, Paul Manship, and Isamu Noguchi; all of whom encouraged M.L. Snowden at an early age to pursue her love of art. As Snowden recalls, "Actually I felt Dali liked children. When he was showing my mother creative furniture he'd designed, he made me take my chewing gum out of my mouth. He told me to take my wet gum in my fingers and had me roll a little worm which was a snake and a ball which was an apple. He said all natural forms are based on these two little shapes, whether they're stretched, melted into other things, or are left alone. He told me my arm was a snake and my head was an apple. I had received an art lesson and I was delighted!" Such family associations sprung from the time when George Snowden joined Dali, Manship, and Noguchi in creatin ... (more)
