Born in Fire
Being an artist is mostly a solitary venture. Artist work alone in their studios thinking about, designing and making their art. Rarely do they get the opportunity to collaborate with other artists.
Cindy and Lori decided to take on the challenge of creating art together that combined Cindy’s glass pieces with Lori’s metal work. Out of this collaboration some very beautiful pieces were designed and created.
Both mediums have limitations that required both artists to be flexible. Lori asked Cindy to make pieces in a certain form and then created the metal sections. Both artists went back and forth making suggestions on how it could be better. Not all the suggestions would work because of the uniqueness of the glass and metal.
Their first collection of pieces will be shown at Gallery Calapooia during the month of August. They hope to continue their collaboration in the future.
