Tali Dalton

Tali Dalto
:"El concepto detrás de mi trabajo es la expresión abstracta de espacio íntimo y emoción en las relaciones personales. Cada escultura expresa una idea en un espacio personal, la captura de un momento íntimo, congelado en el tiempo.
Es mi intención que las obras provocan en el espectador el recuerdo de las relaciones actuales o anteriores o los sueños y esperanzas para su futuro personal.
Estimulando en el espectador el recuerdo de experiencias personales, espero que participen al instante con las obras, la captura de su interés y fomentar la interpretación y la comprensión de cada pieza."

Tali Dalto:"The concept behind my work is the abstract expression of intimate space and emotion within personal relationships. Each sculpture expresses a glimpse into a personal space, capturing an intimate moment, frozen in time.
It is my intent that the works evoke in the viewer memories of current or past relationships or dreams and hopes for their personal future.
By stimulating in the viewer memories of personal experiences I hope to instantly involve them with the works, capturing their interest and encouraging interpretation and understanding of each piece."

Sherry Bellamy

Sherry Bellamy es una artista del vidrio que crea fabulosas cuentas para joyería.Se formo de manera autodidacta y luego fue tomando clases con grandes artistas del vidrio.
Realiza sus cuentas tratando de capturar el diseño en su interior.Actualmente da clases
por el mundo.

Sherry Bellamy:"I've been fascinated with glass since childhood, and I'm delighted to be able to work with this incredible medium. Primarily self-taught, I like to try to push the boundaries of beadmaking and glass sculpture, and I have developed several innovative techniques.

I spend a lot of time designing the interior architecture of my beads, sort of building them from the inside out; the concept of capturing the design within the bead is very appealing to me.

I've been privileged to have taken classes with several brilliant glass artists; most recently I've studied in Italy with Lucio Bubacco. Watching Lucio was no less than a revelation, he does things with glass that I thought were impossible.

Teaching students how to expand their knowledge of glass beadmaking is becoming a large component of my career, and one that I enjoy immensely!"

Durante los últimos nueve años, el Premio Ranamok de vidrio, es sin duda uno de los secretos mejor guardados de la escena internacional contemporánea de vidrio.Es una muestra que convoca a todos los artista de vidrio de Nueva Zelanda y Australia,junto con un grupo de cuatro jueces que eligen a la mejor obra del año en vidrio contemporáneo de Australia y Nueva Zelanda. Cada año realizan un excelente trabajo.
Ranamok es una fiesta visual de gran energía en el mundo del vidrio.Emocina esta amplia muestra de colores vivos, los efectos ópticos derivados de la más sofisticada de las relaciones de la forma y superficie, empleando múltiples y a veces contrastantes técnicas en un solo objeto.
Las fotos que estan publicadas pertenecen a algunos de los finalistas de la edición 2008.
Entrando en este link pueden ver todos los catálogos desde el año 2004.

Over the past nine years, the Ranamok Glass Prize, is surely one of the best-kept secrets on the international contemporary glass scene. Under the beady collector’s eye of its now familiar magpie logo, this luminous road show convenes all that a discerning panel of four judges agree to be the year’s best work in contemporary glass from Australia and New Zealand. And dependably, once again, they have done an excellent job.

The work on view here is consistently of the highest quality, and evidences real energy and excitement on many levels - in terms of its range and diversity; its aesthetic ambition; its openness, and inclusiveness; and its technical achievement. For all this shared range and diversity, as was clearly evident with last year’s show, Ranamok 2003 holds a remarkable degree of coherence, and would appear to add up to something tangibly more than the sum of its constituent parts.

That is to say, it seems to represent a distinctive and recognisable creative community of glass interests in this part of the southern hemisphere, backed in turn by the formidable commitment of Andy Plummer and Maureen Cahill, and underwritten by Whitehaven Coal Limited with support from an impressive range of partners and corporate sponsors.

The formative role of glass departments in Higher Education institutions also reads like a continuous signature throughout; and that of the artist associations, and Craft institutions, completes what amounts to a critical consortium of commitments — each informing this self-evidently vibrant sector of what is increasingly these days referred to as ‘the creative industries’.

Ranamok is a celebration of sheer visual energy in glass. The cool mineral excitement of this wide-ranging show is alive with colour incidents and sudden optical events arising from the most sophisticated relationships of form and surface, employing multiple, and often contrasting, techniques within the span of a single object.

Using traditional lampwork methods of heating and softing glass rods or tubing in the flame of a torch. Each bead is kiln annealed at temperatures over 1000 degrees, removing any residual stress remaining in the glass after it has been worked. The bead is then allowed to slowly cool to room temperature, giving the glass strength, luster, and durability.

We reside in Sweet Home, Oregon.

Our name is derived from a native species of trout from Central Oregon. This species is Julio's most favorite and brings back memories of his childhood.

Angela Bubash
es una joyera estadounidense que trabaja muchas de sus piezas con vidrio.

I honor the tradition of my craft while referencing historical and contemporary art and design. Ephemeral observations drive the work as I try to capture fleeting moments of discovery and create awareness.

Technical mastery and process are irresistible and connect me to the past while the intrinsic personal dimension of jewelry compels my curiosity.

logra con el vidrio soplado en caliente formas como las lentes ópticas para ver a través de ellas una imagen fotográfica de un paisaje. Las fotografías se insertan en un medio de gel y luego se adhirieron a la superficie del vidrio.

Nicole Ayliffe
graduated in 2005 from the University of South Australia with a Bachelor of Visual Arts (glass and photography).

Her work is represented in the National Glass Collection, Wagga Wagga Art Gallery, Australia,the College of Fine Arts, Northeast University, Changchun , China and the Ernsting Stiftung Glasmuseum, Coesfeld, Germany.

In her "optical landscape" series the artist explores the ideas of optics and space. The hot blown glass forms act as an optical lens through which to view a photographic image of a landscape. The photographs are embedded in a gel medium and then adhered to the surface of the glass.
