“Ebb and Flow 2019”
“Life and nature ebbs and flows and as we create art, it also ebbs and flows over time. As time goes on, we come back to the art we used to do and then we create new things that help us move forward. The show will explore the movement of our creativity from past to future, the ebb and flow of our work.”
“There is a constant conflict within my mind.
The engineer in me wants everything under control, clean and neat.
The artist in me wants more movement and flow.
This past year I have been working toward that flow.
I’ve been working on wave forms, mixing colors, and allowing more organic shapes, and trying to get the glass to move, or give the impression of movement, so many of my newer pieces have a more organic look and feel. I’m hoping the viewer will be drawn into the piece, and notice the movement within.”
— Cindy Conder
For many years, Lori has collected stones and rocks from wherever she has traveled. She has collected sapphires from Montana, Herkimer diamonds from New York, rubies from India, petrified food from Michigan, amber from Russia, Jade from China, sunstone from Oregon and stones from many more places. Her collection has grown but stayed hidden until now.
For the August “Ebb and Flow” show, Lori decided to return to some of the traditional metalsmithing she did in the past and use some of the stones she has collected to create her new work. Much thought has gone into the creation of each piece and she hopes people will enjoy her “stones” as much as she has.
